Addis Ababa, April 29, 2024 – The effective implementation of Ethiopia’s transitional justice policy will bring about lasting peace and reconciliation and strengthen human rights protections and rule of law. 

To support Ethiopia’s ongoing transitional justice process, the U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia brought U.S. transitional justice expert Dr. Sirleaf Matiangai from the University of Maryland’s School of Law to Ethiopia April 21 to 27.   

Dr. Sirleaf writes and teaches in the areas of international human rights law, post-conflict and transitional justice, international criminal law, and global public health law. 

During her weeklong visit, Dr. Sirleaf conducted lectures, workshops, and discussions in Addis Ababa and Mekelle with a range of government, civil society, and academic stakeholders on the positive role transitional justice processes play in building sustainable peace and reconciliation.  

The United States and Ethiopia share deep people-to-people bonds that ground our 120 years of bilateral relations in an enduring spirit of friendship, respect, partnership, and the shared aspirations for the well-being of the Ethiopian people.  That spirit has propelled cooperation in health and education, agriculture and food security, science and the environment, and many other areas where the United States government and the American people have made enduring investments to help improve the lives of all Ethiopians.
