The Global Survivors Fund (GSF) together with Conjugal Slavery in War (CSiW) and various grassroots organisations from 12 countries in Africa, in collaboration with the panel responsible for supporting the DRC during its presidency before the African Union are organising the high-level event “It’s Time: Survivors Hearing on Reparations”. The Hearing will take place in Kinshasa, between 22 and 24 November 2021.

The event aims to provide a platform for survivors of conflict related sexual violence to share their testimonies, views, perceptions and reflections around reparations, participation, and co-creation of reparations. The hearing will also provide a platform for survivors, activists, experts, and other relevant stakeholders to engage with one another on these issues, and to draft the Kinshasa Declaration on the Rights of Survivors of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence to Participate and Co-Create Gender Based Reparations.

The event will bring together survivors from Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Central African Republic, Rwanda, Mali, South Sudan, Guinea, Chad and Kenya.
