ABOUT THE TRRC
WHAT IS THE TRUTH, RECONCILIATION AND REPARATIONS COMMISSION?
The TRRC is a place for all Gambians to join in uncovering the truth, seeking justice and ensuring grave violations of human rights never happens again in our nation.
A GAMBIAN PROCESS
In every context, adopting a truth commission requires a unique approach adapted to the specific challenges and opportunities of that place. The TRRC is firmly grounded in a commitment to establish a Gambian-led process that is unique to our needs and innovates based on the highest standards currently guiding the field of transitional justice around the world.
A TRRC that is adaptive and Gambian-led will move beyond replicating other transitional justice experiences to create new approaches that best respond to the needs, demands, challenges and culture of our own context.
We are looking forward to hearing your voice at future TRRC events, online and in the form of a statement to the commission.
Statement taking is expected to start in OCTOBER, 2018. Details and updates will be made available here.
