Minority Floor Leader MP Atty.Laisa Masuhud Alamia constantly asserts the importance of institutionalizing transitional justice and reconciliation (TJR) mechanisms and processes during the Bangsamoro political transition, alongside the voices of civil society organizations that push for TJR in the region.

On Friday, MP Alamia joins the Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society (CBCS) Inc. in its 2-day Transitional Justice Regional Training Camp in Davao City as one of their resource speakers to discuss the experiences of the Bangsamoro government in pursuing TJR and the importance of acknowledging the past while working towards healing in the region.

Alamia has said that “the transition is a point of convergence for civil society and government who have a long-standing history of working together in the region.” CBCS hopes to strengthen this convergence with the training camp, noting how “understanding the important role of transitional justice in societies recovering from past violent conflicts is crucial in setting up appropriate and culturally sensitive TJR mechanisms in the region.”

The training camp is led by CBCS, in partnership with the Independent Working Group (IWG) and through its funding partner Embassy of Spain and Swiss Embassy, together with Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP).
