The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Community Resolution

This paper attempts to provide some understanding of the role of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in promoting reconciliation within the community of Duduza. While the TRC does not have a specific mandate to advance local reconciliation, it has defined its role as building a foundation for reconciliation in South Africa. In order to understand the future of reconciliation in South Africa, this paper examines how the TRC has changed the context within which communities pursue reconciliation.
