Beyond the Truth and Reconciliation Commission: Transitional Justice Options in Liberia

Reviews the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) process in Liberia, examines its final report, and suggests a number of steps to be taken by the government, Liberia’s civil society, and external partners. These suggestions are designed to respond to the opportunities presented by the TRC report and to address the shortcomings of its transitional justice recommendations. ICTJ offers these proposals as a general roadmap on what actors can do in the short-term to begin the process of moving forward with further transitional justice efforts.
