Stories to Build a World By

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


TUTU, A 25-YEAR-OLD PETTY trader and mother living in a village where the bio-energy project had compensated farmers for their produce, told me: “the way we are seeing the condition now, [the Truth and Reconciliation Council (TRC)] have come to take us backward, because we used to survive from our plantations, but today, all have been uprooted. They said they are coming to take us from poverty. But this is not the case.” While reconciliation and peace, empowerment and development are clearly experiences – in the eye of the beholder and diverse between cultures – simplistic evaluation measures simply cannot reflect experience.
