oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - The multiplicity of transition

Volume 35, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0010-4051



This article is part of a wider project that considers issues of transition, transformation, memory, truth and justice. The author makes a few preliminary remarks on the concept of transition before referring briefly to the extent to which a society's transitions (legal, political, cultural and other) influence its processes of transformation. The author reflects on how a society's processes of transition may affect its future. The South African process of remembering, forgetting and imagining as reflected by the Truth and Reconciliatin Commission (TRC) and the responses to it serve as an example.
