Regional seminar on the role of parliaments in the national reconciliation process in Africa

How does a nation deal with a legacy of extensive human rights abuse, and thus with the moral, legal and political dilemmas most commonly associated with post-conflict transitions?

The regional seminar made it possible for parliamentarians of African countries to exchange views on this subject and to foster a better understanding of the role of parliaments in seeing through the reconciliation process, in particular through the use of transitional justice mechanisms, such as truth commissions, reparation programmes, justice reforms and trials. The seminar was jointly organized by the Parliament of Burundi, the Inter-Parliamentary Union and the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance.
