This conversation will take place from February 23-27, 2015.
Daily headlines around the globe portray the numerous conflicts that arise as a result of heated points of contention. Seemingly disparate ideologies, unequal distribution of resources, political, ethnic, cultural and religious differences can all be contributing factors in the emergence of conflict between groups. In the aftermath of conflict, what role can reconciliation play as a path forward; toward healing, peaceful relations, improved communication and functioning societies?
Where does the process of reconciliation begin, with whom and when? These questions and more will be discussed in New Tactics in Human Rights Conversation - Reconciliation Post-Conflict: Approaches, Practices and Realities. This online conversation will seek to identify the role of reconciliation in post-conflict environments. Practitioners will share experiences, lessons learned, approaches, and challenges with the reconciliation process from the perspective of reconciliation efforts around the globe.
