Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) in partnership with the Presidential Committee on the Northeast Initiative (PCNI), the Federal Ministry of Justice and the Atrocities Unit of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) is designing a Transitional Justice mechanism in line with the post-conflict reconstruction efforts in Northeast, Nigeria.  The project takes into cognizance the importance of community participation in the transitional justice process; as this will not only engender the legitimacy of the adopted transitional justice mechanisms but also de-emphasize the perpetrator-focused approach by devising a victim-centred mechanism. The project, which will be implemented within a three year period, will develop a Transitional Justice Policy Framework for the Boko Haram Insurgency; as well as conduct wide and effective public enlightenment campaign on peace, justice and reconciliation in Nigeria. The third prong of the project will be a collaboration with ECOWAS to popularize and localize the African Union Transitional Justice Policy (AUTJP) and build capacity of relevant stakeholders to promote peace, justice and reconciliation across West Africa
