About

Project Description:

The regional reconciliation consultations and the national reconciliation conference seek to harness peace and reconciliation in Liberia by providing the opportunity and space in which Liberians can discuss reconciliation and provide  further understanding of the four policy issues (Reconciliation, Amnesty, Reparation, , and Prosecution) of the TRC.

The project focuses on two key activities:

(1) Three Regional reconciliation consultations. The consultations will be for five-days in each region involving five counties. Region I (Maryland, Grand Kru, River Gee, Sinoe in Grand Gedeh; Region II (Grand Bassa, River Cess, Nimba, Lofa will meet in Bong County. Region III (Gbarpolu, Bomi, Cape Mount and Margibi will meet in Montserrado. A total of 200 key stakeholders (13 representatives from each county) are expected to attend the regional consultations.

(2) The National Reconciliation Conference. This activity will bring together 200 nationals from the 15 Counties and 50 persons from the Diaspora and other partners to participate in the national Conference. The Conference will last for five days.

Each of the 15 counties will be represented by 13 persons and each county will make formal presentations of county specific issues and recommendations at the National Conference. The national Conference will be held in Monrovia.

It is expected that these consultations and the national conference will help Liberians explore and experience a range of motivations, values and best practices in reconciliation and peace-building initiatives.
