While there are many reports covering the Gujarat riots of 2002, much less is known of
its aftermath. Have the citizens of Gujarat returned to a state of normalcy? What kind of
compensation have victims of the riots received? Have there been efforts for
reconciliation between the two communities? What scope is there for dialogue now?
This paper gives a brief history of the Gujarat riots and Gujarat, describes aspects of the
author’s visits to the state in 2006, explores the relationship between justice and
reconciliation, and lists some factors that continue to block reconciliation between the
communities. (author’s abstract)
