Abstract: This article explores the link between processes of democratic subjectification and truth commissions. Looking at the two truth commission projects that operated in Guatemala in the 1990s, it argues that these commissions can and have been used as important spaces for the articulation of political identity and thus for making demands upon the future democratic society for the communities involved.
