Fifty years ago, reconciliation was not an issue in global politics. Wars were ended by military victory or, alternatively, the negotiation of ceasefires, and reconciliation was considered important only in the private realm. Today, however, things are different. Reconciliation is now a powerful trope in global politics and the goal of fostering not private but ‘national reconciliation’ after violent conflict or

Thinking infantile eroticism

reconciliation, the works of Christine Angot offering something of a paradigm here. Many texts treat this issue sensitively and creatively, but some, in their use of graphic sexual detail (Angot once again exemplary) blur the borderlines between a detailed and provocative exposure of child abuse, and a collapse into the pornographic. On the furthest end of this scale, there have also been some notably controversial texts, such as

the search for funding for local conflict transformation and reconciliation projects (Shirlow and McEvoy, 2008). These radical developments have been facilitated by dialogue initiated by former prisoners, on an inter-communal basis through meetings with former prisoners on the opposing side and via intra-group dialogue. Former prisoners have attempted to persuade militants of

8 Joseph Cody and James Corcoran Cody and Corcoran, 1800–1801 The inability of the government to curb loyalist depredations created the impression amongst Catholics that the white terror had the sanction of the central authorities. This perception, in turn, crippled the Cornwallis administration’s efforts at reconciliation. In fact, it can be argued that the sectarian focus of the continuing terror, combined with the excesses that preceded the rising and the horror of the rebellion itself, served to void the legitimacy of the state in the eyes of the majority

term, issue in a public morality and the reconciliation of nationalism and internationalism, ensuring the entrenchment of order and justice in international politics. This conceptualisation of liberal internationalism still leaves room for interesting ideological differences. The commitment to peace and progress in a world of (nation) states left constant contention about other components of internationalist ideology. The four most pertinent areas 49 The roots of liberal internationalism of disagreement concerned the use of force, intervention in the affairs of

conception of territorial politics became redundant and one is tempted to conclude that the Conservative reconciliation with New Labour’s idea of Britain meant that politics had become universally Gladstonian. It was William Hague (1998), succeeding Major as party leader, who took the first step onto this new territory with his speech to the Conservative Party Conference in 1998. He condemned Labour in the usual terms for having undermined the stability of the country and, in the course of that condemnation, identified the purpose of his leadership to be one of restoring

In the literature on transitional justice and peacebuilding, post-conflict populations are often considered as deeply divided and traumatised societies which are in need of reconciliation (Daly and Sarkin, 2007 ; Lederach, 1997 ). Reconciliation, in turn, is commonly understood as a specific and promising tool which, in the shape of a TRC, can be applied to transitional or post-conflict situations in order to foster social

–child analogy for class relations obscures the economic source of class oppression in the appropriation of surplus value, and its ‘resolution’ is a marriage which at best seems a symbolic reconciliation and at worst a romantic diversion from the industrial theme. I want to argue, however, that the novel only appears inadequate because of the assumption underpinning Marxist theory, that work relations alone provide the fundamental structures of society. Feminist theory affirms that gender relations are at least of equal, if not primary, importance, and that any intelligent

: ‘Can anyone be so mentally befogged as to think that the Orangemen – or their kith and kin – could ever be converted to cooperate with the pro-Irish and to drive the English out? There is only one way to solve the problem – insist on England clearing out.’ Reconciliation between unionists and nationalists was now less compelling and consigned to some undetermined future: ‘Let time and circumstances assuage our differences when England goes.’12 The Anti-Partition Convention, alluded to by Father Maguire in his open letter, met in Dungannon on 14 November to launch the
