Professor Andrea Durbach is a South African who defended the Upington 14 in the Cape Town High Court case in which all were sentenced to death on the principle of "common purpose" for the death of a black councillor in Pabalello township in Upington in the Northern Cape. Professor Durbach sent Khulumani an alert about the publication of the article she constructed from interviews with Khulumani staff in the National Contact Centre. 

She writes, "I am delighted to advise that the article on ‘transformative reparations’ arising from the interview with you and other colleagues in South Africa last year has now been published in the International Journal of Transitional Justice."

The article was published by the International Journal of Transitional Justice on 23 August 2016 and is entitled: Towards Reparative Transformation: Revisiting the Impact of Violence against Women in a Post-TRC South Africa and can be found at

After leaving South Africa, Professor Durbach moved to Sydney, Australia where she now directs the Australian human Rights Centre in the Faculty of Law at the University of New South Wales.
