Summary
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN"> <html> <head> <meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy, see www.w3.org"> <title></title> </head> <body> Human rights violations leave deep scars on people, societies, and nations. Rights groups argue that resolving past violence is necessary for a peaceful future. But how can nations ensure that instruments of transitional justice are the best path to reconciliation? This book develops a theoretical framework - a framework of acknowledgement - to evaluate truth commissions. Analysis of the difficulties encountered and the ultimate failure of truth commissions in Uganda and Haiti reveals that acknowledgement of past violence - by both victims and perpetrators - must come before goals such as forgiveness and social cohesion if reconciliation is to be achieved. </body> </html>
