Dinsdag 26 April 2016 17:15 - 19:00
How did the Truth and Reconciliation Commission impact South Africa? And how has it influenced transitional justice generally? Twenty years after the truth commission was set up, we will be exploring these questions with the help of a number of experts. We will also discuss the South African experience for what it teaches us about the (im)possible ways for a society to make its peace with a violent past. With Bram Vermeulen (NOS correspondent in South Africa), Thijs Bouwknegt (researcher at NIOD – Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies) and Catherine Jenkins (South-Africa expert from the SOAS institute at the University of London).
