Atrocities Watch Africa (AWA)
The AWA mission is predicated on fighting impunity, ending the commission of crimes, and holding accountable those responsible for such violations in Africa. International justice in Africa has been more for elite conversations, with limited interrogation of its efficacy, effectiveness, and efficiency in addressing atrocities without being seen as Victor’s justice. AWA intends to locate international justice in a realm of evolving continental approaches to atrocities and massive human rights violations, with the view of developing African capacities to handle such violations in the immediate future. Africa has untold stories of resilience and response to atrocities and post-atrocity management. It is AWA’s intention to document, share, and celebrate these positive developments.
