Mandela’s position.

Topic: Mandela’s position.

Order Description
Nelson Mandela argued that apartheid was unjust but also argued that reconciliation between whites and blacks in post-apartheid South Africa took priority over (a) punishing wrongdoers who acknowledged what they had done and (b) paying full compensation to the black victims of apartheid. He thus placed greater weight on national reconciliation than on corrective justice or retribution.

In evaluating the soundness of Mandela’s position, outline (a) the considerations that might favor rejection of compensation for victims of wrongdoing and punishment of wrongdoers and (b) the considerations that might make it appropriate to deemphasize corrective justice and retribution. Finally, defend your own conclusion about Mandela’s position.
