Transitional justice: for Italy, “a means to address post conflict and reconciliation”

NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 14 – “Italy strongly believes in transitional justice as an effective means to address the after-effect of violent and divisive conflicts and to achieve sustainable peace and social harmony. As exemplified particularly by the Colombian peace process, the transformational drive required for inclusive and long-lasting peace stems primarily from a peace agreement that contemplates transitional justice as an inherent part of a comprehensive and interdependent architecture”, the Italian Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Stefano Stefanile told the Security Council: “In this framework – he added – accountability for gross human rights violations and for serious crimes under international law are key elements for the foundation of a just and peaceful society”.

The Council meeting on “Transitional Justice: a building block towards sustaining peace” was convened by the Belgian rotating presidency and chaired by the Minister of Foreign Affairs Philippe Goffin.

“International tribunals, including the International Criminal Court and fact-finding and investigative international mechanisms are fundamental tools in the fight against impunity. Italy has been a staunch supporter of the development of international criminal justice, as a building block accompanying societies towards truth and reconciliation. We have regularly provided funding to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and the IIIM for Syria. We have also supported, through political, technical and financial means, the work of hybrid criminal courts in East Timor, Kosovo and Sierra Leone”, said Stefanile.
