This article examines the relationship between trust, testimony and truth recovery processes as part of post-conflict transition. It uses a case study of unionist attitudes toward a community-based truth telling project in Northern Ireland to demonstrate the impact an absence of trust can have unpon what the French philosopher Paul Ricoeur has described as the 'space of controversy' that emerges between the 'certification' and the 'accreditation' of testimony.
