Years of violence and intolerance have left Zimbabwe's population and properties damaged and have generated a sizeable Diaspora and refugee groups. This event will mark the UK launch of the Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum's Taking Transitional Justice to the People Programme to consult and educate Zimbabweans who have gone through periods of state sponsored and politically motivated violence in their lives on the nature and processes of transitional justice. Discussion at the event will focus on current trends in Zimbabwe in the context of transitional justice.
This meeting will be followed by an open reception.
