The TRRC is an independent Gambian institution mandated to conduct research and investigations into human rights violations committed under the presidency of Yahya Jammeh. The Commission further aims to prevent a repetition of the violations and abuses suffered under the past regime by making recommendations to government and citizens aimed at ensuring the crimes of the past never recur in The Gambia.

In pursuit of these aims, the TRRC will facilitate community and national reconciliation, launch civic education efforts on peace and justice, design individual and communal reparations, and shape the scope of future prosecutions and amnesties.  It will promote national reconciliation and healing, by assisting victims and their relatives.

First Women’s Listening Circle 
This is a place for Gambian women to come together to find new voice. Women are invited to share the challenges they faced under the Jammeh regime and today when seeking justice.
