Synopsis

Narrating Political Reconciliation offers a compelling approach to South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). It provides a critical theoretical account of how the TRC's reconciliation story came into being, and how it shaped and promoted the norms, practices and truisms central to the global 'reconciliation industry'. In particular, the book examines the material practices and rituals that underpinned the TRC. Claire Moon shows how the TRC narrated apartheid history as a sequence of gross violations of human rights perpetrated with a political objective, with the effect of transforming competing politico-moral claims into an 'objective' legal-technical discourse. She also shows how the TRC constructed victims and perpetrators as the key subjects of the new political order through ritual practices of confession, testimony, forgiveness and healing. Moon argues that, the TRC had multiple and divergent effects. Whilst it attempted to secure reconciliation, the TRC also generated new social conflicts around questions of justice, reparations and apartheid violence: it appeared to redeem those who profited from apartheid but did not directly perpetrate atrocities; it left unacknowledged the everyday suffering of thousands; it left undisturbed structures of material inequality within which political violence was made possible. Overall, Moon provides a unique approach to reconciliation and transitional justice in post-conflict and democratizing states, and this book serves as a challenging critical analysis of the field for students and scholars alike.
