Victims know best: Implementing Reparations in Côte d'Ivoire, a brief by ICTJ

15 Aug 2016 0:0

After a consultation process that involved the active participation of victims, the National Commission for Reconciliation and Compensation for Victims (La Commission Nationale pour la Réconciliation et l’Indemnisation des Victimes des crises survenues en Côte d’Ivoire, CONARIV) made a series of recommendations on reparations and provided an initial list of victims to the government.

The International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) has been working with CONARIV, victims’ groups, and other government entities on reparations since 2012, providing technical assistance, encouraging a process of consultation and dialogue, and learning from victims about their needs and demands.

ICTJ's new brief presents a series of proposals for the government and the general public to help advance the process of defining a credible reparations policy for Côte d’Ivoire and advance discussions on the best strategy to address the rights of victims of serious human rights and international humanitarian law violations committed by the warring parties.
