Abstract The democratic transition in South Africa was painful but peaceful. After years of state violent oppression in a society remarkably divided between blacks and whites, the transitional process allowed the emergence of a democratic society, walking to psychological restoration and social reconciliation. One of the most important elements to the success of this process was the option for restorative justice as a way to solve crimes committed during the past regime. Because of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, South Africa refused a punitive model but guaranteed criminal responsibility and investigation of the facts.
