"Uncivil Society" – Challenges for Reconciliation and Justice in South Africa After the Truth and Reconciliation Commission

This following paper is a presentation that will attempt to focus on the challenges that face South Africa in the endeavor to build sustainable reconciliation after the operations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). In so doing, the presentation does not seek to offer a critique of the TRC, for it is patently obvious that the TRC was merely one of several mechanisms for managing transitional justice in South Africa and it was also only one of a range of initiatives necessary to building reconciliation in South Africa.
