About Us

The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) was launched in the year 2000, in the aftermath of South Africa´s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The aim was to ensure that lessons learnt from South Africa´s transition from apartheid to democracy were taken into account as the nation moved ahead. Today, the Institute helps to build fair, democratic and inclusive societies in Africa through carefully selected engagements and interventions. >>

In this context, the IJR has devoted the 2014 edition of its annual South African Reconciliation Barometer report to reflecting on past progress, present relevance and future challenges for reconciliation in South Africa. The report, authored by Dr Kim Wale, reflects on over a decade’s worth of SARB data.
