Abstract

Nearly ten years after Liberia Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) released its final Report, there has been no implementation of the recommendations proffered. This article focuses on post-conflict memorialization, the TRC’s strategy to engender collective remembering, and a set of State led actions designed to teach future generations about the violence in the past with the view of preventing relapse to violent conflict. Both the constructive and destructive patterns of remembering that have evolved in the wake of government’s silence since the release of the recommendations will be analyzed.
