The 2013 South African Reconciliation Barometer (henceforth SARB
or Reconciliation Barometer) Report pays closer attention to the
relationship between reconciliation, inequality and exclusion. It posits
that reconciliation becomes difficult when social divisions are the result
of unequal power relations that are being perpetuated in society.
Reconciliation, exclusion and inequality are intimately tied to one
another. More often than not an imbalance in power results in the
material, symbolic, political and social exclusion of marginalised
sectors of society. (excerpt)
