Initially, the idea of political reconciliation plays an important role in debates on transitional justice. It defines a transition process from a state of severe injustice or conflict to a state of renewed social peace and cooperation. This understanding is based on the precedence of South Africa’s shift from apartheid to democracy and, in particular, by the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in the 1990s. Since then, the practice and theory of political reconciliations have been further enriched in the aftermath of regime changes, international conflicts and civil wars.

At a critical juncture in global politics, Pan-Africanism contains resources for the defence, reinvigoration and reinvention of a more just, equal and rule-bound multilateral world order. At the same time, its nativist reflex and defence of difference carry particular risks in a context where strikingly similar viewpoints are promoted by New Right movements.
