Abstract:This article examines South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), as an attempt to resolve some of the more deep-rooted aspects of the South African conflict. The focus is on the broader aspects of the TRC - including its origins, the motivation behind its establishment and the terms of that establishment. Furthermore, it provides a critical evaluation of the efficacy of the TRC within the theoretical framework of the protracted social conflict paradigm of Burton, Azar and others. In particular, it examines the relationship between peace, justice and truth in the reconciliation process. Bibliogr., notes, ref.
