Abstract

This dissertation evaluates the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) as one of the modalities of addressing the 2007 post-election violence and the culture of impunity that has marred Kenya. It scrutinizes the credibility of the TJRC and examines to what extent it meets international standards. The dissertation assesses the circumstances leading to the formation (TJRC), its composition, objectives, mandate and powers. The research analyzes the complimentarity principle in international criminal law and examines the extent to which truth, justice and reconciliation commissions are considered to be an adequate response to crimes that fall within the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court. It further examines minimum international standards for truth, justice and reconciliation commissions to be termed as acceptable and effective.
