Brankovic, Jasmina. 2013. "Accountability and National Reconciliation in South Africa." Ediciones Infojus: Derechos Humanos 2, no. 4: 55-86.(Click here for Spanish-language version)An exploration of the extent of accountability and reconciliation arrived at to date in South Africa calls for a look not only at the agenda and impact of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission but also at the role played by state and other structures after 1994. This article suggests that accountability and reconciliation have been limited, although the responsibility for this may lie more with choices made after the TRC was established than with the commission’s work itself. This article was written for a special journal issue on the 30th anniversary of Argentina's truth commission, which includes reflections on the South African TRC.
Bantjes, Megan. 2011. Theories of community intervention: Implications for the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation torture project, Appendix A. Johannesburg: Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation.This paper was written with the aim of theoretically informing CSVR's model of community intervention with a specific focus on work done in the field of torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. The document briefly reviews some of the better known theories and models of community work from psychology and social work. The objectives, principles and ethics which might guide CSVR in its community based torture work are outlined. Some conclusions are made about which theories would be most appropriate to inform the model.
Bantjes, Megan. 2011. How others have done it: A desk study of community projects related to torture, Appendix C. Johannesburg: Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation.With the aim of informing CSVR's development of a community work model to address torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, this desk study examines six community projects conducted in South Africa and in other countries. Details of four of the interventions were found in the literature and information about two projects was gathered in interviews with the staff involved. Each intervention is discussed in terms of six questions that have been found useful for thinking about community work (see Questions about community work, Appendix B). The objectives of CSVR’s community work on torture - transformation, prevention and amelioration - provide the framework for considering the implications of each of these projects for CSVR's development of a model.

In 2010, the “Advocating Justice” workshop brought together Africa-based practitioners and scholars to share experiences and evaluate African civil society’s advocacy for transitional justice on the continent. Discussing case studies from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone and Liberia, the participants highlighted the central role local organisations play in shaping transitional justice agendas in Africa. The workshop was hosted by the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation on behalf of the African Transitional Justice Research Network.
