Abstract

Reconciliation is an important agenda for post-war countries. It plays a major role in harmonizing bilateral and regional relations. Lin Ren compares reconciliations between the Sino-Japanese and the Franco-German dyads. Each dyad shares a deep-rooted historic antagonism. Nevertheless, France and Germany have reached a far deeper degree of reconciliation. The author explores the causes that led to the diverse outcomes, so as to challenge taking rationality as the single micro-foundation of decision-making concerning reconciliation.   Contents ·        Economic Interdependence ·        Maintaining or Challenging Equilibrium ·        Convergent Memories of History ·        Political Similarity ·        Territorial Narratives     Target Groups ·        Researchers and students in the fields of political science, international relations and history ·        Journalists, politicians    The Author Dr. Lin Ren completed her PhD at Freie Universität Berlin under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Klaus Segbers at the Department of Political and Social Sciences.

Abstract

Anger, hatred, resentment, grudges—when the products of conflict smolder for years, decades, or centuries, the idea of peace may seem elusive and unrealistic. At the same time, people and societies need to move beyond these negative traumatic effects so they can heal. Forgiveness and Reconciliation explores in depth two different yet essential components of this peace-building process. Unlike most books on the subject, which tend to focus on the individual’s development of forgiveness from a single perspective, Forgiveness and Reconciliation reaches across the spectrum of approaches—socio-psychological, biopsychological, therapeutic, developmental, and spiritual among them—to offer examples of intervention at the individual, community, generational, and national levels. This inclusiveness (and a range of real-world illustrations from U.S. race relations to the Armenian genocide) gives readers access to not only the core issues of forgiveness and the dialogic nature of reconciliation, but also the intersecting psychological and social processes involved as they affect all participants in conflict. Highlights of the coverage: Reconciliation efforts in Rwanda, Darfur, India, and Pakistan. Restorative conferencing and its role in fostering forgiveness. Lessons in empathy and repentance from lifers in prison. Promoting reconciliation through arts and the media. The potential for forgiveness despite revisionism, denial, and continued injustice. Reconciliation in the divided society. Forgiveness and Reconciliation breaks new ground as a volume that will enhance the work of social and peace psychologists, students and researchers in intergroup and international relations, and peace and conflict studies.

Abstract

Can one forget atrocities? Should one forgive abusers? Ought we not hope for the final reconciliation of all the wronged and all wrongdoers alike, even if it means spending eternity with perpetrators of evil? We live in an age when it is generally accepted that past wrongs--genocides, terrorist attacks, bald personal injustices--should be constantly remembered. But Miroslav Volf here proposes the radical idea that letting go of such memories--after a certain point and under certain conditions--may actually be the appropriate course of action. While agreeing with the claim that to remember a wrongdoing is to struggle against it, Volf notes that there are too many ways to remember wrongly, perpetuating the evil committed rather than guarding against it. In this way, "the just sword of memory often severs the very good it seeks to defend." He argues that remembering rightly has implications not only for the individual but also for the wrongdoer and for the larger community. Volf's personal stories of persecution offer a compelling backdrop for his search for theological resources to make memories a wellspring of healing rather than a source of deepening pain and animosity. Controversial, thoughtful, and incisively reasoned, The End of Memory begins a conversation hard to ignore. - Publisher.
