Re 1063-20: LJ v TRC: LJ v LS Settlement Agreement Options.

I received your 18 June 2020 email [18 Jun: IJR-SH Re LJ Re CCMA-MM&VG: 1063-20: LJ v TRC: LJ v LS Settlement Agreement Options] in response to LJ v TRC negotiations email [17 Jun: LJ Re CCMA-MM&VG: 1063-20: LJ v TRC: LJ v LS Settlement Agreement Options].

**

IJR-SH: I am writing in my capacity as the Executive Director of the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR).

EoP-LJ: Acknowledged as received.

**

IJR-SH: The IJR has no formal association with the TRC and I am therefore not sure why we are listed as respondents.

EoP-LJ: I apologize for including IJR as a ‘TRC’ respondent if – I Repeat IF – the information I have linking IJR with the TRC is inaccurate. I don’t think the information is inaccurate, but it may be. Here is some of the information I based my conclusion on that IJR has reconciliation links – perhaps not formal legal, depending on your definition of formal legal links – to TRC:

The Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) is a non-governmental organisation and think tank based in Cape Town, South Africa. It was forged out of the country’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2000. 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. … The Institute’s vision is to build fair, democratic and inclusive societies in Africa. Through carefully selected engagements and interventions, the IJR seeks to shape national approaches to transitional justice and reconciliation in Africa by drawing on community intelligence as well as macro-trend research and comparative analysis. The IJR publishes its research, makes policy recommendation, and performs reconciliation work on the ground. … IJR’s main mission is to keep reconciliation and social justice on South Africa’s and Africa’s agenda.  Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu is the Institute’s patron. Its Board of Directors includes Professor Brian O’Connel, Justice Richard Goldstone, Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza, Dr Louise Asmal and Dr Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela.  – Wikipedia: Institute for Justice and Reconciliation.

If I was aware of other NGO’s with a reconciliation strategic focus, who have former TRC Commissioners on their Board of Directors, I would have included them as CCMA: LJ v TRC respondents.

If the TRC Commissioner respondents had agreed – or do agree – to the EoP – OKC TRC – UN Resolution [lj-v-trc: PDF: pp.30-71/137; 16 Apr: 22:50: CCMA 1063-20: LJ v TRC: Draft Settlement Agreement: Agree PDF; Disagree PDF] strategic focus; and consented to monitor the setting up of an EoP Axis Oath database, there would be a need for reconciliation focused individuals to help manage such EoP Axis Oath database; until it could be transferred to the State; once EoP Scientific and Cultural law becomes international law.

**

IJR-SH: The IJR is an NGO that was started by Professor Charles Villa-Vicencio and was never intended nor acted as a continuation of the TRC.

EoP-LJ: In what way do you mean IJR and the TRC are strategically or tactically different in terms of your reconciliation goals and/or work? Does the IJR have a different definition for reconciliation – an act of reconciling, as when former enemies agree to an amicable truce – than the TRC?

Charles Villa-Vicencio was a director of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission which organised the public hearings on the atrocities committed during apartheid. He is a senior research fellow in the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation which he founded in 2000 after his gig at the TRC. – Wikipedia: Charles Villa-Vicencio.

Did not see this before, but either you were inaccurately quoted or I am misunderstanding you:

According to Henkeman, the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation was launched in 2000, after the Truth and Reconciliation process. He says those that were involved in the process felt that the work of reconciliation needed to continue, and formed the IJR. – Cape Talk: New Beginnings: Stanley Henkeman is passionate about reconciliation.

To the extent that IJR has responded – by actions of omission and commission – to EoP Truth and Reconciliation outreach, with ‘no thanks we are not interested in Ecology of Peace – sincere peacenik / honourable warrior’ truth and reconciliation – UN Resolution [lj-v-trc: PDF: pp.30-71/137] definitions and strategic goal; IJR decisions contributed to the CCMA: LJ v TRC filing [26 Mar: CCMA Filing Notice: LJ v TRC: Desmond Tutu, IJR & DoJ TRC Unit:  PDF], to formally require South Africa’s TRC experts to make their formal EoP TRC or No EoP TRC decisions; so they can be documented into the LJ v LS [lj-v-ls: lj-v-trc: PDF: pp.06-75/137] court record.

Why should only Desmond Tutu and TRC Commissioners be responsible for South Africa’s social conflict reconciliation experts ‘No EoP TRC’ decisions?
