There are four internationally recognised pillars of work in the transitional justice field. They include: truth seeking; bringing about justice for victims that ranges from apology by perpetrators to applying the law to pronounce judgement and sentence; reparations for victims; and, guarantee of non-repetition that human rights atrocities will not be repeated – the “never again” principle. Memorialisation is increasingly recognised as a fifth pillar because of its importance in various aspects of the transitional justice process, such as establishing the truth about historical events, providing acknowledgement, healing and also symbolic reparation to victims and survivors of human rights violations.
