Testimony, memoir and the work of reconciliation
Gillian Whitlock

In Australia and Canada over the past decade reconciliation has become a pre-eminent framework for promoting the rights of indigenous peoples. In the last two decades of the twentieth century more that 30 Truth and Reconciliation Commissions were set up around the world as reconciliation became a powerful discourse in the pursuit of human rights. Although it has always been the case that ‘[i]ndigenous peoples continue to experience “the frontier” everywhere’, 1 their experiences of dispossession

German–Israeli relations, 1949–69
Author: Lorena De Vita

The rapprochement between Germany and Israel in the aftermath of the Holocaust is one of the most striking political developments of the twentieth century. German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently referred to it as a ‘miracle’. But how did this ‘miracle’ come about? Drawing upon sources from both sides of the Iron Curtain and of the Arab–Israeli conflict, Lorena De Vita traces the contradictions and dilemmas that shaped the making of German–Israeli relations at the outset of the global Cold War. Israelpolitik offers new insights not only into the history of German–Israeli relations, but also into the Cold War competition between the two German states, as each attempted to strengthen its position in the Middle East and the international arena while struggling with the legacy of the Nazi past.

national community is secure. It is the restoring of dignity that gives the apology a role in reparative justice.10 The principal potential benefit of the apology for the victims of the injustice and the apologiser is that of reconciliation. According to Marrus: ‘Judging by the frequency with which themes of reconciliation appear in apologies, this goal is widely embraced as one of the purposes of the exercise.’11 Reconciliation is obviously of mutual benefit in as much as it improves relations between groups within a polity or improves relations between states

proven to be something of an exception with regard to the legacy of the past. The unprecedented political reconciliation between unionism and nationalism at an institutional level – particularly in the period of relatively stable devolved government between 2007 and 2016 – deflected attention from the reality that approaches to legacy and reconciliation have been at best fragmented, staggered and inept, leaving thousands of citizens without truth, acknowledgement and accountability. 1 Despite the cursory commitments to addressing the

dealings with the IRA or the republican movement in terms of bringing about the ceasefire. I came into it immediately after the ceasefire and my role as Secretary General for the Forum for Peace and Reconciliation was set up in response to that. The purpose of this was to bring parties together to discuss possibilities of dialogue and bring to light the issues that hindered peace. Was the Forum designed to

to be permanent but rather to resolve a dispute, forcing the excommunicant to repent and acknowledge the bishop’s authority. To that extent lifting the sentence of excommunication was almost as significant an act of power as imposing it. As tales such as this suggest, reconciliation therefore embodied important aspects of the bishop’s ministry, his roles as both peacemaker and judge. Yet while

stability with the uncoerced reconciliation characteristic of a political community whose institutions are structured by legitimate forms of law. That is an ideological equation perpetuated by the victorious liberal democratic heirs of the Enlightenment. The most recent expression of this particular line of interpretation is the allegedly post-metaphysical thinking of theorists of communicative action and recognition, who provide

Europeanisation breakthrough
Boyka Stefanova

conflict resolution were endogenous only, with trivial or random external influence. From this standpoint, the task of examining the EU’s role as a factor of peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland is unproblematic. Most analyses agree that EU contributions have dwarfed the interventions of the UK and Ireland as principal stakeholders in the process and that in contrast to the United States, the EU

The challenge of Northern Ireland

11 Acknowledging religious and cultural diversity in an antagonistic society: the challenge of Northern Ireland Duncan Morrow This chapter provides a historical perspective on the evolution of relationships among communities in Northern Ireland since partition, focusing especially on the 1998 Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement’s commitment to reconciling the different traditions and the constraints its structures have placed upon the kinds of change possible. It argues that the main political parties have moved away from reconciliation and considers the proposed

do it, something happens to you: you grow. You become a bigger person, able to understand, or reconcile, more. 1 “If you can do it,” Iimmi says, “something happens to you”; the reconciliation of disorder with order occurs both actively and passively. “Reconcile that,” Iimmi suggests, “do it,” and, as a result, “you grow.” Growth figures, here, the imbrication of what you do with what is done to you, the interminable process by which you become at once more complicated and more connected, by which you become, as Iimmi puts it, “bigger.” Now, reconciliation
