Pathways Toward Reconciliation
Research and Education
The term "reconciliation" is increasingly on the minds of people all over the world. What is "reconciliation"? Demands of justice and peace often seem to be in tension with one another, especially in situations where historic conflict has resulted in persistent injustice or severe harms and injuries. Peacemakers Trust has been exploring the topic of reconciliation with a view to weaving together several central themes of reconciliation including acknowledgement, apologies, reparations and forgiveness.
