This report formed the basis of a September 2010 workshop organised by the Essex Transitional Justice Network and Redress, which brought  together a multidisciplinary group of experts to discuss the existing and evolving approaches to the rehabilitation of victims of gross human rights violations.

Participants were encouraged to establish multidisciplinary dialogues, between representatives of various professional communities working on the issue of rehabilitation (such as psychiatrists, psychologists, academics and lawyers) domestically and internationally for government; governmental or intergovernmental organisations; courts and other justice processes and nongovernmental organisations and networks. These discussions served to identify further ground for development, in order to clarify the scope of rehabilitation under international law and ensure its delivery in practice.
