Élaborer un document de politiques générales pour régir la justice transitionnelle dans des États africains marqués par leur grande diversité sociopolitique et culturelle, n’est certainement pas une tache aisée. C’est pourtant à cette entreprise que des organisations non gouvernementales (ONG) et des experts scientifiques se sont attelées, depuis quelques années, sous l’égide de l’Union Africaine. Le dernier document de leur travail, en l’occurrence le Projet de cadre stratégique de justice transitionnelle de l’Union africaine (PCSJTUA)[1], a fait l’objet d’une dernière consultation d’experts les 19 et 20 novembre 2015, dont l’auteur de cette contribution a pris part, à Cape Town en Afrique du Sud[2]. La présente réflexion a pour but d’examiner brièvement l’apport du PCSJTUA à la justice transitionnelle du contexte assez particulier du Soudan du Sud.

TrustAfrica is enhancing independent coverage of the Habré Trial proceedings taking place in Dakar, Senegal. Since the trial began on 20 July 2015, TrustAfrica’s International Criminal Justice (ICJ) Fund has been working closely with a consortium of civil society organizations and law graduates to monitor, document, and share information on proceedings across various platforms. 

The ICJ Fund has mentored a group of law graduates from the Cheikh Anta Diop University (UCAD) in Dakar, Senegal, to monitor and provide daily reports on the proceedings. These reports are disseminated widely across various networks.

The work of these students provides an invaluable resource to activists and legal experts working on criminal justice issues in Africa and beyond. As the trial reopened on February 8, 2015 Le Monde newspaper highlighted TrustAfrica’s pioneering work in supporting documentation and monitoring of the groundbreaking trial.
