Judicial Mechanisms of Transitional Justice

Third Workshop with the Supreme Court and Courts of Appeal of South Sudan

Building upon the topic of the previous workshop, which addressed questions of non-judicial mechanisms of transitional justice, this workshop introduced the participants to judicial mechanisms of transitional justice. It consequently delved into an analysis of comparative models of national, international and mixed judicial mechanisms. Additionally, a Justice of the Supreme Court presented on the principles of the South Sudan justice system. The workshop was delivered by three representatives of the Max Planck Foundation.

From 30 January to 1 February the Max Planck Foundation conducted this workshop for the Supreme Court and Courts of Appeal of South Sudan. The workshop was organised in cooperation with the Judiciary of South Sudan. It is the third in a series of workshops designed to provide technical legal capacity building to the Supreme Court and Courts of Appeal of South Sudan in the area of transitional justice. The workshop took place in Juba, South Sudan.

The workshop was inaugurated by the Chief Justice of South Sudan, His Excellency Chan Reec Madut, the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to South Sudan, Johannes Lehne, and a representative of the Max Planck Foundation.

This workshop is part of the project "Supporting Transitional Justice Capacities in South Sudan", which is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and implemented by the Max Planck Foundation.
