At some point, hopefully in the near future, the conflict in Darfur will come to an end. At the conclusion of the conflict it is imperative that transitional justice mechanisms be put in place that provide the people of Darfur with an accurate record and account of the abuses perpetrated during the course of the conflict. This study seeks to provide a model for the establishment of a truth commission in post-conflict Darfur. The model is devised from an analysis of the successes and failures of the El Salvadoran and Sierra Leonean truth commissions. These two case studies provide important insights into the creation and operation of truth commissions within transitional contexts. The experiences of El Salvador and Sierra Leone provide a base from which a suggested truth commission model for post-conflict Darfur can be created.
