The Goldstone Commission, formally known as the Commission of Inquiry Regarding the Prevention of Public Violence and Intimidation, was appointed to investigate political violence and intimidation that occurred between July 1991 and the April 1994 general elections.
Appointed by then president FW de Klerk on 24 October 1991, the commission submitted 47 seperate reports.
The Commission played a critical role in defusing political violence that arose as negotiations around the future of South Africa began. The Commission concluded that political violence was fuelled by a 'third force'.
The Commission was chaired by Justice Richard Goldstone.
The ANC is in an alliance with the South African Communist Party (SACP) and the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). Each Alliance partner is an independent organisation with its own constitution, membership and programmes. The Alliance is founded on a common commitment to the objectives of the National Democratic Revolution, and the need to unite the largest possible cross-section of South Africans behind these objectives.
