Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde: Violence and transition in South Africa

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde: Violence and transition in South Africa

This paper examines aspects of structural violence in South Africa and suggests that true reconciliation can be achieved only if these aspects are redressed. The structural violence of the past has vital implications for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's enterprise to acknowledge and rewrite an often denied history of human rights abuses. It raises vital questions as to the nature of economic development and its relation to new and ongoing forms of social conflict.
