Justice is a complex and contested concept in most societies. In societies that are in transition from an oppressive or brutal past, this is particularly so, as is nowhere more evident than South Africa. Justice is a normative concept constructed politically and socially in each society. In that construction, history plays a significant role. It is the role of history in the construction of a democratic conception of justice in post-apartheid South Africa which is the focus of this address.
