gacaca process. This will be the entry point to subsume disparate dynamics and features of the gacaca practice. 2 The truth is an elusive and multidimensional concept. In the report of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission four notions of truth are identified ( TRC-SA, 1998 : 110–17). The forensic truth entails answers to the basic questions of who, where, when, how and against whom and possibly the context, causes and patterns of violations. Other dimensions of the truth – narrative, social and restorative – go beyond this factual delineation

Federation. In fact, the idea of reconciliation had been central in the peace negotiation between Biafra and Nigeria even before the end of the war. People expressed concerns as to whether Biafrans would still be accepted back into the Federation as citizens with full rights. Biafrans, with the fear of genocide also wondered what their fate in the future Federation of Nigeria would be. When the war ended and there was no victor, no vanquished, everybody was happy. Then the Federal

Representations of Rwanda have been shaped by the display of bodies and bones at Tutsi genocide memorial sites. This phenomenon is most often only studied from the perspective of moral dimensions. This article aims in contrast to cover the issues related to the treatment of human remains in Rwanda for commemorative purposes from a historical perspective. To this end, it is based on the archives of the commissions in charge of genocide memory in Rwanda, as well as interviews with key memorial actors. This study shows the evolution of memorial practices since 1994 and the hypermateriality of bodies in their use as symbols, as well as their demobilisation for the purposes of reconciliation policies.

belief system. For the socio-cultural coalition, soft law, although less satisfactory, allows for the construction of the separate territories approach which, if defined favourably, can safeguard sports autonomy. Of course, the use of soft law by the EU is not without its critics (Kinsella and Daly 2001). The future of EU sports law and policy Current EU sports policy based on the separate territories concept is therefore located within the secondary aspects of the coalitions belief systems. Is this reconciliation between coalitions and hence current EU sports policy

Activist Shaped Attitudes on Israel and Palestine for “Transparent”’, 11 October 2017. 75 In Don’t Mess with the Zohan (Dennis Dugan, USA, 2008), humour makes it possible to imagine an Israeli–Palestinian reconciliation, but only in the limited context of a New York neighbourhood. For a detailed analysis of this film, see Bernard, ‘Consuming Palestine’, 203–7. 76 In particular, the films of Eran Riklis and Udi Aloni, which feature Palestinian main characters. 77 ICJ, Legal Consequences of the Construction of a Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory
