The Kenyan TJRC : An Outsider's View from the Inside Paperback / softback



Between 1963 and 2008 Kenya experienced systematic atrocities, economic crimes, ethnic violence, and the illegal taking of land.

To come to terms with these historical injustices and gross violations of human rights, the Kenyan Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) was established.

From the perspective of an insider and academic expert, The Kenyan TJRC: An Outsider's View from the Inside reveals for the first time the debates and decisions made within the Commission, including how the Kenyan Commission became the first such commission to recommend that its Chair be prosecuted for gross violations of human rights.

This book is one of the few insider accounts of a truth commission, and one of the few that reflects on the limitations and opportunities of such a commission.

The Kenyan TJRC provides lessons and recommendations to those interested in addressing historical injustices through a truth commission process.
