Abstract

The contribution of this book to the field of reconciliation is both theoretical and practical, recognizing that good theory guides effective practice and practice is the ground for compelling theory. Using a Girardian hermeneutic as a starting point, a new conceptual Gestalt emerges in these essays, one not fully integrated in a formal way but showing a clear understanding of some of the challenges and possibilities for dealing with the deep divisions, enmity, hatred, and other effects of violence.

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

All over the world the practice of peacebuilding is beset with common dilemmas: peace versus justice, religious versus secular approaches, individual versus structural justice, reconciliation versus retribution, and the harmonisation of the sheer multiplicity of practices involved in repairing past harms. Progress toward the resolution of these dilemmas requires far more than reforming institutions and practices.

Abstract

"The legacy of the Second World War has been, like the war itself, an international phenomenon. In both Europe and Asia, common questions of criminality, guilt, and collaboration have intersected with history and politics on the local level to shape the way that wartime experience has been memorialized, reinterpreted, and used. By directly comparing European and Asian legacies, Confronting Memories of World War II, provides unique insight into the way that World War II continues to influence contemporary attitudes and politics on a global scale. The collection brings together experts from a variety of disciplines and perspectives to explore the often overlooked commonalities between European and Asian handling of memories and reflections about guilt. These commonalities suggest new understandings of the war's legacy and the continuing impact of historical trauma. Daniel Chirot is Herbert J. Ellison Professor of Russian and Eurasian Studies at the University of Washington. Gi-Wook Shin is director of the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center at Stanford University, as well as holder of the Tong Yang, Korea Foundation, and Korea Stanford Alumni Chair of Korean Studies. Daniel Sneider is associate director of the Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Center. Contributors include Thomas Berger, Frances Gouda, Julian T. Jackson, Fania Oz-Salzbe, Gilbert Rozman, Igor Torbakov, and Roger Petersen; "A provocative, timely, superbly documented volume on urgent moral, political and historical topics. There is no trace of idealization--the book is objective, clear-minded, and historically poignant. A substantial, truly enriching addition in terms of a global comparative approach"--Vladimir Tismaneanu, University of Maryland, College Park; "This truly 'international' edited volume on the issues of war, memory, and national identity explores how memories about wartime experiences--including criminality, collaboration and reconciliation--are shaped and reshaped, connected to questions of national identity, and used for domestic and international political purposes"--Patricia L. Maclachlan, University of Texas, Austin"--
