National Transitional Justice Working Group (NTJWG)

NTJWG facilitates consensus among transitional justice actors on appropriate principles and processes for Zimbabwe.

The National Transitional Justice Working Group (NTJWG) is a platform established in 2014 by various non-state Zimbabwean transitional justice stakeholders to influence official transitional justice processes in Zimbabwe. Its purpose is to facilitate consensus among transitional justice actors on appropriate principles and processes for Zimbabwe. 

Its mission is to create an inclusive space for the coordination of transitional justice stakeholders, share experiences, and build synergies for comprehensive, accountable, victim-centred and participatory transitional justice processes in the country.

One of its major achievements to date is the establishment of the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission, which it pressured the government to put in place. The following are the six thematic areas that stakeholders agreed a comprehensive and meaningful transitional justice process for Zimbabwe should work around:

  • Promotion of truth, justice and accountability
  • Reparations
  • Memorialisation
  • Gender
  • Institutional Reform.

The Working Group is open to all stakeholders, and organisations and individuals who wish to be involved in any one of the thematic areas above can follow up on NTJWG social platforms, register as a partner and keep watch of the events calendar.
