The Global Learning Hub for Transitional Justice and Reconciliation is a network of organisations from Germany and across the world, initiated by the Berghof Foundation and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development in early 2022. The Hub reflects a diversity of experiences, benefits from the respective strength of each partner and promotes their work.
We want to facilitate an inspiring space for dialogue and learning that is driven by solidarity, inclusivity and innovation. By building bridges, generating knowledge and amplifying voices the Hub seeks to advance the policy and practice of dealing with the past to strengthen peace and justice.
The team coordinates the collaboration between partners of the Hub, facilitates joint activities and networking, supports knowledge generation, and disseminates information about partner’s activities.
