Ethiopia Highlights

Civil society organizations are indispensable in aiding transitional societies, yet many in Africa, including Ethiopia, struggle with implementing effective, long-term strategies for dealing with past violence. The common shortcomings of these organizations — ranging from their absence, rushed initiatives, to a one-size-fits-all approach—stem from a lack of in-depth, localized strategies and an overreliance on external funding and intervention methods. ACT has been established to counter these issues by promoting a shift towards long-term commitment, localized understanding, and early intervention in transitional justice efforts. ACT aims to foster sustainable peace through collaboration with a diverse range of stakeholders, including local and international experts, victims, and other relevant entities, emphasizing the need for a strategic, comprehensive approach to transitional justice and peacebuilding in Ethiopia and across Africa.
