Transitional Justice and Empowering Women for Sustainable Peace in Zimbabwe

Date & Time

May. 14, 2024
12:00pm – 1:00pm ET


5th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
and Online


Join the Wilson Center for a conversation on "Transitional Justice, and Empowering Women for Sustainable Peace in Zimbabwe,” with Nontando Ndhlovu on May 14, from 12–1pm ET (US).

Transitional justice in Zimbabwe is an important topic, especially in the aftermath of conflict and political violence. However, women in the country who often endure most of the conflict or repressive rule are usually overlooked or minimally engaged in transitional justice processes or post-conflict peacebuilding discussions. By overlooking gender dimensions in its transitional justice processes, the government limits its prospects for achieving holistic sustainable peace and reconciliation. 

Ms. Nontando Ndhlovu will discuss the establishment of a transitional justice framework in Zimbabwe and reiterate the urgent need to include women’s voices in reconciliation and peacebuilding processes. Drawing on lessons from transitional justice processes in Columbia and Liberia, the conversation will propose policy recommendations to amplify women’s voices in advancing sustainable peace in Zimbabwe.
