Project Title: Surfacing Narratives Towards Transitional Justice in the North and South: Weaving Women’s Voices – A Memory Project in Aid of Developing Transitional Justice Interventions
Project Donor: AECID
Project Recipient: Department of Political Science
The project aims to contribute to developing strategies for redress for women victims/survivors of gender-based atrocity crimes before, during, and after Martial Law. Specifically, it seeks to establish a memory documentation in aid of developing various gender-sensitive transitional justice initiatives. These are:
- Highlighting of women’s agency in documented narratives (narrative documentation and the right to truth)
- Providing space to build initial solidarity between women from the north (Cordillera Administrative Region) and the south (Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and selected non-BARMM areas) (solidarity-building and the right to justice).
- Initiating public reckoning of gender-based atrocities against women and enticing critical conversations on appropriate transitional justice measures (knowledge-sharing, public information and the right to reparation).
- Strengthening of capacities of target implementing agencies to deliver gender-sensitive transitional justice programs in relation to the implementation of the NAP WPS 2017-2022 (training and the guarantee of non-recurrence).
Part of the project is a deliverable for the Sand Box Residency Program of the Aretè consisting of the launch of the project website. This site shall document project highlights and progress.
