Abstract

This policy brief hones in on the specifc ways in which a people-centred approach to dealing
with the past can be built from the ground up, complementing the previous Berghof Policy
Brief no. 5. It works through the commonalities and differences between transitional justice,
reconciliation and dealing with the past; and puts emphasis on the dual roles of the victims and their potential in either escalating or de-escalating violent approaches to conflict.
