No Peace Without Justice and the Radical Party discuss the delicate transition in Libya

On the occasion of the 27th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, No Peace Without Justice and the Nonviolent Radical Party, Transnational and Transparty (NRPTT) organised, on 17 September 2014, a side event on Transitional justice and accountability in Libya. Libyan and international panellists of the meeting: Libya: Transitional justice and accountability as necessary measures to halt the humanitarian and political crisis offered an analysis of the current political and humanitarian crisis that Libya is witnessing since mid-May 2014. Transitional Justice, the Transitional Justice Law n.29, approved in Libya in December 2013, accountability and sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) have been at the core of the discussion.

To date, Libya has a number of transitional justice mechanisms within its own legislative system. These elements can provide the country with concrete tools and measures that will help Libya channelling current tensions and divisions into an inclusive dialogue, avoid the creation of a culture of impunity and foster a climate of responsibility and accountability within Libyan political dynamics. Libya’s political future and long-term stability will be defined by what will happen in the coming months.

Therefore, during this delicate period of transition, NPWJ urges that transitional justice initiatives continue to be at the centre of the political debate on Libya both at a national and international level. Ensuring that transitional justice and the respect of human rights remain at the heart of the political dialogue and objectives for and in Libya will allow the country to build a future where full respect for human rights will be guaranteed and an effective national reconciliation achieved.
