The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation was incorporated in the year 2000 in the aftermath of South Africa´s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The major objective of the IJR Reconciliation Award was to ensure that lessons learnt from South Africa´s transition from apartheid to democracy were taken into consideration as the nation progressed.
The Institute helps to build fair, democratic and inclusive societies in Africa through carefully selected engagements and interventions.
The Institute affords an annual Reconciliation Award to an individual, community or organization in South Africa which has contributed towards resolution. Through this award the Institute would like to acknowledge and showcase the recipient’s approaches and strategies to enable reconciliation, whether they originate in the spheres of politics, media, business, culture, sport, and academia or community service.
