Roads to Justice: Apologies and the Dutch East Indies

The Roads to Justice event, in cooperation with NIOD, will take place on 7 May 2014. The event will discuss Dutch violence during the Indonesian War of Independence (1945-1949) and the significance of the apologies made by the Dutch government in 2011. Are they just empty words or do they mark a real change?  Are they part of the Dutch denial process or are they opening up new perspectives on the Indonesian War of Independence?
