The previous chapters have suggested that the needs of victims of gross violations of human rights include needs involving knowledge of what happened and why and who was responsible. Based on an interest theory of human rights, the right to the truth has received some institutional recognition. In this chapter we move on to the discussion of the structure and content of the right, followed by an appraisal of “other rights” that may be associated with or bear resemblance to the right to the truth, and we discuss the case for understanding the right to the truth as being freestanding and of value, which is independent of the value of other rights.
