Abstract

The civil war caused many psychological and physical trauma for common people. As a way to end this such
war, related parties usually take formal and social measures in peace agreement. In this case, the formation
of the truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) in Aceh is one of a task to accomplish after the signing
of memorandum of understanding in Helsinki (MoU Helsinki), and the implementation of law number
11, 2006 on the Acehnese government. On one side, the situation has urged TRC to be formed in Aceh,
however local regulation has not specifically organized the forming of the commission. Reconciliation in
Aceh comes with its own character by stressing more on the application of religious, custom, and local
wisdom approaches without forgetting the effort of truth revealing on some cases of heavy human rights
violation which occurred during conflict. The Acehnese society is a society who lives with their Islamic
values and specific custom.
