Summary
Bringing together some of the world's leading scholars, practitioners, and human rights activists, this groundbreaking volume provides the first systematic analysis of the 2012-2014 Brazilian National Truth Commission. While attentive to the inquiry's local and national dimensions, it offers an illuminating transnational perspective that considers the Commission's Latin American regional context and relates it to global efforts for human rights accountability, contributing to a more general and critical reassessment of truth commissions from a variety of viewpoints
