Transitional Justice for Youth

An orientation meeting for NPC’s partners from 21 districts was held under the project Youth Engagement with Transitional Justice for Long Lasting Peace in Sri Lanka. The project is funded by United Nations Peace Building Fund and implemented with the support of Legal Action World Wide and Harvard Law School.

At the orientation meeting partners were told of project objectives, how to select people for training and how to handle logistics. As a first step, a perception survey will be conducted among young people on Transitional Justice (TJ) in Sri Lanka.

This is NPC’s first TJ project with young people. War victims, youth parliamentarians, members of youth clubs and vocational students will be given priority to ensure the best results from the project.
