Truth commissions, Human rights, Transitional justice, reconciliation, Governmental investigations
This paper is a consideration of four major truth gathering projects —Argentina, Chile, Guatemala and Colombia-. This descriptive study applies a “typology of truth” to these 4 historical projects and considers how these truth commissions defined the notion of “truth” in the context of the highly politicized context of transitional justice.
