This is Ethiopian Review Policy Research Center’s series on From Dictatorship to Democracy extracted/quoted from books and articles published by Albert Einstein Institution and similar sources.

The principle of Transformative Reconciliation states that:

1. Human rights violation (crime) causes harm and reconciliation and reconstruction should focus on repairing the harm.
2. The people most affected by the crime should be able to participate in its resolution.
3. The responsibility of the government is to maintain order and of the community is to build peace.
