The Urgency Of Strengthening The Aceh Truth And Reconciliation Commission: An Effort To Sustain Peace By Reparations Of Conflict Victims
Keywords:Reparations, Confict Victims, Human Rights
The conflict for Aceh's independence from the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia ended peacefully through political negotiations in 2005. However, the issue of the rights of conflict victims has not been resolved until now. At the same time, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was established to handle it. This article aimed to explain the main causes of TRC's weakness in getting the attention and support of related parties, including the community, to strengthen the institution. This article uses a qualitative method with document data to explain the weaknesses of the Aceh TRC. Its findings show that the Aceh TRC could not encourage the government to make reparations for victims of the conflict, the main reason being that the formal regulatory status that underpins the institution's existence is too low.
