Looking back, reaching forward : reflections on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa by Charles Villa-Vicencio( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book constitutes a tour de force, capturing the essence of the TRC debate, while posing a set of questions with which South Africa is likely to wrestle for some time to come. Indeed, it is intended to provoke debate rather than provide simple answers to complex questions. This makes it a useful book for teaching purposes, as well as for those interested in transitional politics." "A number of different voices are heard, all seeking to provoke practical ways forward for a nation that in the early 1990s was teetering on the brink of collapse. The pertinent question posed by this book is: "Where does South Africa go in the post TRC period?" Equally important is the question: "Does the TRC model provide a viable alternative to prosecution for other countries in transition from oppressive rule to a society commited to human rights and the rule of law?""--Jacket

Walk with us and listen : political reconciliation in Africa by Charles Villa-Vicencio( Book )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over 40 years, Charles VillaVicencio has been on the front lines of Africa's battle for racial equality. In Walk with Us and Listen, he argues that reconciliation needs honest talk to promote trustbuilding and enable former enemies and adversaries to explore joint solutions to the cause of their conflicts. He offers a critical assessment of the South African experiment in transitional justice as captured in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and considers the influence of ubuntu, in which individuals are defined by their relationships, and other traditional African models of reconciliation. Political reconciliation is offered as a cautious model against which transitional politics needs to be measured. VillaVicencio challenges those who stress the obligation to prosecute those allegedly guilty of gross violation of human rights, replacing this call with the need for more complementarity between the International Criminal Court and African mechanisms to achieve the greater goals of justice and peacebuilding"UCT Press website

African renaissance and Afro-Arab spring : a season of rebirth? by Charles Villa-Vicencio( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The hope and despair surrounding the Afro-Arab Spring in North Africa has only begun to be played out in regional and global politics. And the call for an African renaissance that followed the miraculous political transition in South Africa is, twenty years later, viewed with similar ambiguity. What is clear is that current developments in Africa, north and south, promise something markedly different from what has prevailed at any point since the dawn of the African independence movements of the 1950s and 60s. But the continent's own identity remains unresolved, posing the question whether and how its multiple and divergent experiences can be understood and perhaps woven into a basis for unity. Contributors to this volume explore whether or not events north of the Sahara and on the southern tip of Africa can be catalysts for change in other parts of the continent. Chapters assesses the nature of political resistance, revolution, and transition in North and Southern Africa, addressing critical factors...economics, culture, gender, theology...that reveal the promises and perils of African reform. Includes a foreword by former South African president Thabo Mbeki
