Linking justice and peacebuilding

For more than 20 years, first as a student and anti-Apartheid activist, and then as a civil society contributor to building a new democratic South Africa, in my everyday work, I was constantly integrating the goals of building peace and reconciliation in my country, with the needs to address both past and future experiences of injustice. Whether by reference to torture and disappearances, or the seismic processes of race and class-based marginalization or dispossession - for practitioners - our engagements with peace, justice and development, were practically and necessarily indivisible… in part because ordinary people experienced them as such. However, in the subsequent ten years, working with international civil society organizations dedicated to either human rights or to peacebuilding - despite rhetoric to the contrary - I have encountered a sustained discomfort or lack of innovation and imagination in both fields, to practically integrating these social and programmatic objectives.
