The decade-long armed conflict has resulted in serious human rights violations in the country.

To make immediate arrangements for the truth, justice, and fulfillment of conflict victims and affected women, including self-respect, and to create a mechanism and environment for transitional justice to experience self-justice, family justice, and social justice.
