Dealing with a Legacy of Mass Atrocity: Truth Commissions in Uganda and ChileNetherlands Quarterly of Human Rights (2001)
After a period of mass atrocity committed at the hands of the State, societies are left trying to find a way to deal with what has taken place. Many States have attempted to utilise a form of the truth commission as an instrument of social learning and political change. Acknowledgement is central to this process. Such commissions in both Uganda and Chile were tempered with societal realities and met with varying degrees of success.
