The Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC or the Commission) was established in the wake of the tragic events of the 2007/2008 Post-Election Violence (PEV).

As part of the Kenya National Dialogue and Reconciliation (KNDR) process, an agreement for the establishment of a truth, justice and reconciliation commission (TJRC Agreement) was also adopted. Pursuant to the TJRC Agreement, the National Assembly enacted the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Act (TJR Act) on 23 October 2008. The Act received Presidential Assent on 28 November 2008 and came into operation on 17 March 2009.

In terms of the TJR Act, the Commission was inaugurated on 3 August 2009.The broad mandate of the Commission was to inquire into gross violation of human rights and historical injustices that occurred in Kenya from 12 December 1963 when Kenya became independent to 28 February 2008 when the Coalition Agreement was signed.
