The Transitional Justice Clinic

The Transitional Justice Clinic (TJ Clinic) provides technical support and concrete help for the national investigation and prosecution of conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) and other international crimes, enabling national justice practitioners to bring justice for atrocity crimes at home.

TJ Clinic experts deploy individually as consultants and together as the TJ Clinic, a project of the Institute for International Criminal Investigations (IICI) for administrative purposes.


Why the TJ Clinic?

International justice is meant to be residual, secondary to domestic courts. National practitioners who are willing to investigate and prosecute international crimes in their own courts have expressed a critical need and requested technical expertise by international practitioners. The TJ Clinic was established to answer this request.


Our Impact

As a result of TJ Clinic’s interventions,

  • Victims are empowered through participation in the justice process and related remedies;
  • National legal practitioners quickly integrate the practical skills necessary to conduct international criminal investigations and prosecutions independently; and
  • Post-conflict justice processes are strengthened, advancing the fight against impunity.
