Commission for Dialogue, Truth and Reconciliation
The Commission for Dialogue, Truth and Reconciliation (2011-2014) was established after the 2010-2011 post-election violence in Côte d’Ivoire as a mechanism to promote reconciliation, uncover the truth about past human rights violations, and provide recommendations to prevent future abuses and provide reparations to victims. The commission was mandated to develop an appropriate typology of human rights violations; seek the truth and identify where responsibilities lie for past and more recent national socio-political events; hear testimony from victims and perpetrators; propose means to help victims heal from trauma; identify and make proposals aimed at strengthening social cohesion and national unity and at combating injustice, inequality, tribalism, nepotism, exclusion and hatred in all forms; educate for peace and dialogue; and promote respect for differences and democratic values. The socio-political events in question were not clearly defined and no timeframe was set for the commission’s work.
