Abstract

This article analyzes a category of truth-telling initiatives that emerge from civil society and resemble, either self-consciously or coincidentally, official truth commissions such as those in Chile, Peru, South Africa, and Timor-Leste. Like truth commissions, these Unofficial Truth Projects (UTPs) seek to elucidate, clarify, and acknowledge past human rights abuse or mass atrocity in order to contribute to democratic rule and peace for the long-term.
