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 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:

  1. Highlighting of women’s agency in documented narratives (narrative documentation and the right to truth)
  1. 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).
  1. 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)
  1. 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.
