The Facility on Justice in Conflict and Transition is financed by the European Commission through the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace (IcSP) of the Commission’s Service for Foreign Policy Instruments and aims to support transitional justice and constitution building processes in third countries affected by conflict or in transition through:

  • provision of access to short term expertise, including the deployment of experts specialized in transitional justice and/or constitution building covering a wide range of thematic and geographic areas;
  • design and delivery of coaching, training, workshops and dialogues of varying duration to support country processes;
  • research and development of knowledge products, contextual and comparative analyses, case studies, and guidance notes to support country processes.

The consortium responsible for implementing the Facility on Justice in Conflict and Transition comprises the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) as consortium leader, Conciliation Resources (CR), the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ), the Toledo International Centre for Peace – Colombia (CITpax-Colombia), and the Swiss Peace Foundation (swisspeace).

The launch event taking place in Brussels on 19 March 2019 is aimed to introduce the Facility and its consortium members to relevant European Union actors and to exchange ideas on how transitional justice and constitution building can be promoted during on-going conflict and crisis.
