Do truth and reconciliation comissions bring lasting peace?
Ivory Coast is due to swear in its Truth, Reconciliation and Dialogue Commission, aimed at forging unity after the post election violence which left about 3,000 people dead and 500,000 displaced.
The 11-member body includes religious leaders, regional representatives and Chelsea footballer Didier Drogba to speak for Ivorians living abroad.
The commission is modelled on South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission but it is not clear if it will be issuing amnesties and pardons.
But do TRCs bring lasting peace?
Does the process of talking about what happened help to heal the wounds or does it stir up emotions that are better left to die down naturally?
Has your country had a TRC? If so, what did it achieve?
Perhaps you think such a process would help a situation in your country?
Which past conflicts in Africa might have benefitted from a truth commission?
