Abstract [en]

The Liberian Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established to document the atrocities committed against the civilian population between 1979 and 2003. It is through access to this information that the citizens and civil society organisation can interrogate government on the implementation of the TRC's recommendaitons. The post-conflict reconstruction should include the establishment of an information infrastructure at the TRC to promote the dissemination of information, and the documentation generated must be correctly managed if it is to serve its intended purpose for which it is being created. Institutions such as the national Archives of Liberia should be equipped to allow information managment activities such as pervation and access. TRC archives are the collective memory of the war atrocities; their good management is vital for the healing, democratisation, and reconciliation processes.
