Negotiating the Release of Political Prisoners in South Africa

Negotiating the Release of Political Prisoners in South Africa

This case study will provide an overview as to the manner in which the release of political prisoners was linked to broader political concessions during the negotiation process in South Africa. It will also consider problems encountered in determining fixed cut-off dates for the granting of indemnity (and then amnesty) and the limited mechanisms put in place to deal with the reintegration of prisoners into society.
