Still Not Talking: Government's Exclusive Reparations Policy and the Impact of the 30 000 Financial Reparations on Survivors

This report highlights survivors' views about the R30 000 reparations granted by the South African government. This money was granted to those identified as survivors of gross human rights violations by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). The views expressed by twenty survivors of gross human rights violations living in the Vaal townships, south of Johannesburg, shows the frustrations experienced by survivors in persuading government to effect a comprehensive reparations policy. This is the first systematic impact assessment reflecting on the detailed needs of the survivors since the grants started being paid out in 2003.
