The International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) "assists countries pursuing accountability for past mass atrocity or human rights abuse. The Center works in societies emerging from repressive rule or armed conflict, as well as in established democracies where historical injustices or systemic abuse remain unresolved." [1]

"The ICTJ was first conceived at a strategy meeting hosted by the Ford Foundation in April 2000...The participants expressed broad support for the establishment of an organization focusing on transitional justice. The Foundation subsequently asked three consultants— Alex Boraine, Priscilla Hayner and Paul van Zyl — to develop a plan for such an organization. Their initial five-year proposal received funding support from the Ford Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and the Andrus Family Fund.

"The ICTJ officially opened its doors in New York City on March 1, 2001, and within six months was operating in more than a dozen countries, as requests for assistance poured in. In 2004 Founding President Alex Boraine returned to South Africa to establish the Center’s Cape Town Office. Offices in Brussels and Geneva followed in 2005." [2]
