The Transitional Justice Working Group (TJGW) tasked itself with devising a multi-dimensional transitional justice strategy for the United States government to implement in response of the Da’esh’s crimes against the Yazidi. Using the Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2018, herby known as the Elie Wiesel Act, as legal framework, the TJGW created a comprehensive transitional justice strategy focused on restitution, reintegration, and prevention. By considering the past, present, and future of the Yazidi, this report has developed a transitional justice strategy focused on improving the current reality of the Yazidi and developing a better future for the Yazidi and Iraq as a whole.
