Report: From Truth To Repair – Implementing Truth Commissions’ Recommendations on Reparations
By Luke Moffett and James Gallen (Reparations Team)

This report by Luke Moffett and James Gallen analyses the mutual relationship between truth commissions and reparations, and to what extent they can complement and reinforce one another’s goals in acknowledging the atrocities of the past, building social inclusion and trying to vindicate victims’ suffering.
