Reconciliation and Transitional Justice Commission

Profile

The Reconciliation and Transitional Justice Commission is concerned with the philosophy and practice of conflict transformation through reconciliation at various levels: personal, interpersonal, community, national and international contexts. Reconciliation is conceived as entailing interrelated dimensions of spiritual, psychological, social, political, legal, economic and ecological transformation. It requires commitment to an ongoing process of relationship transformation and support for structures that enable this transformation to be sustained. Reconciliation is therefore seen as integrally linked with peacebuilding and restorative justice.

The Commission is particularly concerned with exploring the role of reconciliation in dealing with the past and building peace for the future after mass violence and violations of human rights by autocratic regimes, including in the context of transitional justice mechanisms such as prosecutions, truth commissions, reparations and traditional community-based approaches to justice and reconciliation. Other contexts include national healing and reconciliation processes involving indigenous and settler populations in established democracies. Understanding different cultural perspectives and worldviews is considered essential for the study of reconciliation theory and its application in practice.
