South Sudan

This report documents people’s perceptions and experiences of truth, justice and reconciliation in relation to the past and present conflicts in South Sudan. It finds that more than half of the people interviewed have been victimized by an armed group or actor, and that women are increasingly targeted in the post-2013 period.
