From 9 to 14 September, ND-Burma and its Reparations Working Group held an advanced training session on transitional justice in Yangon.
Members of the Reparations Working Group examined how other countries have provided redress to victims of human rights violations and discussed what actions the Burmese government will have to take in order to finally end mass state sanctioned abuses.
The Reparations Working Group also prepared for the launch of its transitional justice report before the end of the year.
The Reparations Working Group comprises ND-Burma’s 13 members as well as a number of other civil society organizations working on transitional justice. These include: The Wimutti Volunteer Group, Genuine Public Servants, Open Myanmar Initiative, ’88 Generation Peace and Open Society, and the Future Light Center.
