This article considers the need for a truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) in post-conflict Côte d'Ivoire similar to that established by South Africa after the collapse of apartheid to deal with past violations of human rights and to help recreate trust in South African society and that established in Sierra Leone, which was based on the Lomé Peace Agreement and jointly signed by the Sierra Leone government and rebel parties in July 1999 to deal with war injustices and heal the rift in society caused by the atrocities committed during the war. The Sierra Leone TRC also contributed to a national vision as a unifying goal for the country's future.
