Cost Benefit Analysis of Truth & Reconciliation Commissions Worldwide
August 19, 2013 § Leave a comment
August 19, 2013, More news today about cut-backs at TRC-Canada reminded me of cost-benefit (to victims-survivors) analyses of truth & reconciliation commissions worldwide. Because enough of this blog’s commenters are human rights professionals, I am going to ask that using contact form below, please share with me the latest raw or published data that you have access to and I will re-post on this blog. I always prefer the raw data that hasn’t gone through the political-editorial process, but, again, whatever current data you have would be helpful.
From those reports that I have read covering past trc’s (not TRC-Canada which obviously is ongoing) victim-survivors do better once they have launched private suits than by relying solely on processes & compensation offered by truth & reconciliation commissions.
