  2.

  3. The process of the transformation, reconciliation, development and reconstruction of South African society had not been finalised when the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and the Amnesty Committee had reached the end of their mandates in 1998 and 2003 respectively.

  4. In the past decades, the process of European integration has influenced all fields of law, and eventually also criminal law. European legislation now requires Member States to criminalize all sorts of harmful conduct but does not determine the full scope of criminal liability, omitting to define general principles of criminal law such as ‘intention’.

  7. Amnesty justified?

    Publication date: June 14, 2012

    The manner in which South Africa dealt with its past and the process of granting amnesty through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission is generally considered legitimate. This is not the case, however, for many other amnesties granted in times of political transition or in post-conflict situations. National efforts to establish peace and democracy often clash with international legal demands. The core question of this study is what kind of a...
