Additional Information for African Journal of International Criminal Justice
Africa has been the site of some of the world's worst atrocities. Africa is also home to some of the most innovative mechanisms, ranging from truth commissions to national and international criminal trials, to address accountability to the perpetrators of violence. Yet, African voices are often marginalized in global conversations about peace, justice and reconciliation. The AJICJ is a refereed and interdisciplinary scholarly periodical that aims to fill this gap. It is a forum for international criminal law and transitional justice issues in Africa and the developing world as analysed by authors drawn from throughout the continent and the world.
The Journal aims to create the intellectual space for profound scholarly reflection on the phenomenon of atrocity crimes in Africa and national, sub-regional, regional as well as international efforts to combat such crimes through prosecutions, traditional justice approaches or alternative mechanisms such as truth seeking and reconciliation. We hope to stimulate an Intra-South and Global dialogue on the complexities facing societies seeking to transit from war and other collective traumas to peace. With these goals in mind, AJICJ will seek to give voice to a diversity of perspectives on fundamental, long-term and systemic problems concerning justice and accountability, as well as emerging issues, and possible solutions to them.
