Truth and Reconciliation in South Africa - Audrey R. Chapman & Hugo van der Merwe

Truth and Reconciliation in South Africa: Did the TRC Deliver? by  Audrey R. Chapman & Hugo Van Der Merwe provides a comprehensive evaluation of the TRC process and its impact on South African society. Based on a six-year study, the volume draws on an analysis of the victim hearings, amnesty hearings, institutional hearings, public opinion survey data, and extensive interviews with a range of TRC staff, people who worked with the commission, and members of different communities affected by the TRC.

Truth and Reconciliation in South Africa raises fundamental questions about the TRC, indeed about all truth commissions, their abilities to realize the mandates assigned to them, and particularly to achieve the difficult balance between truth-finding and reconciliation.
