This book brings together leading social scientists and researchers to critically interrogate the success of the reconciliatory project, using ten years of public opinion data collected by the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) through the South African Reconciliation Barometer survey. Offering new and unique insights into contemporary South African society, it will be of particular relevance to the field of transitional justice and post-conflict studies, including universities and students, researchers, policy-makers and the civil society sector.
