Abstract

This article assess how the South African Truth Commission was embedded in politics of memory about the past and how these different versions of that past affected the outcomes of the TRC. It will emphasize the past as a negotiated political settlement, one wich would ultimately limit the TRC'S effect. It will also discuss how part of the role of a Truth Commission is to legitimize the transition of power and the new power strata while serving to de-legitimize the old apparatus of power.
