• Carr Center for Human Rights Policy


World mapThe Transitional Justice Program at the Carr Center, run by the Transitional Justice Evaluation Team including Geoff Dancy, Phuong Pham, Kathryn Sikkink, and Patrick Vinck, gathers data and insights on transitional justice that empowers policymakers, communities, and survivors to navigate the path toward a brighter future. In a culmination of research and data development since 2020, the team has just launched a website that compiles all of their findings on transitional justice in one place. 

The Transitional Justice Evaluation Tools website compiles comparative data on human rights prosecutions, amnesties, truth commissions, reparations, and vetting policies around the world from 1970 to 2020. This global database aims to contribute to the prevention of atrocities in fragile states and around the world by supporting evidence-based policies. 

Since 2020, the Transitional Justice Evaluation Team members have developed research, generated data, met with policymakers and practitioners, and conducted training and outreach, all with the goal of improving assistance to victims and enhancing the effectiveness of transitional justice mechanisms.
