Media engagement and advocacy play an important role in countries undergoing transitional justice processes. In addition to shining a light on prominent perpetrators and issues of accountability, media can also provide and promote platforms for victims and survivors, humanizing stigmatized people and showing the diversity and depth of their stories.

Conducted in collaboration with the Coalition's Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation, this webinar will offer examples from Africa and Latin America, among other regions, of how Sites of Conscience can work with media outlets to make what can be cumbersome political and legal processes more accessible to local communities. The session will also provide strategies for navigating security concerns and press restrictions.

While formal transitional justice processes can often feel out of reach to everyday people, civil society organizations and activists can play a vital role in bridging these processes and making them more accessible to communities. Reparations - be it symbolic reparations, restitution, or rehabilitation-- are one area that CSOs can contribute towards justice, acknowledging survivors of conflict and assisting them to reintegrate into society. In this webinar, join Ereshnee Naidu Silverman, Senior Director for the Global Transitional Justice Initiative, as she speaks with partners and allies of the Coalition’s Global Initiative for Justice, Truth and Reconciliation about how CSOs and other non-state actors can effectively foster understanding and action around reparations in post-conflict societies.
