+ TRC act no.34, 1995
 
     

  Described as the largest survey of human rights violations undertaken anywhere
in the world, the TRC has become the key instrument in democratic
South Africa’s interrogation of its apartheid past.
 

 
 
 
 
  Although the mandated focus of the TRC was on gross human rights violations perpetrated in the period
1960-1994, the TRC consistently attempted to position these violations within broader societal processes.
A wealth of information on the apartheid era has emerged and been fed into a range of other
processes committed to shaping South Africa's future through an understanding of its past.
