Peace, Justice and Human Security
The Gambia is rebuilding after two decades of autocratic rule marred by egregious human rights violation including murder and disappearances. While the change in 2017 has provided opportunities for change, Gambians are confronted with the legacy of Jammeh, which has contributed to social polarization. Transitional Justice mechanisms have been instituted to support the transformation of the Gambia into a democratic society by delivering justice to victims, but also promoting social cohesion as mechanism to effective governance.
Justice, Peace and Human Security program aims to engage and empower state and non-state institutions, communities and individuals to work towards peace building and social cohesion. It also seeks to promote Human Security and support The Gambia’s transitional justice agenda
