Dermot Ahern

13 From peace to reconciliation Foreign Minister Dermot Ahern, TD Introduction Coming as it did at a pivotal time in the political fortunes of Northern Ireland, Foreign Minister Dermot Ahern’s lecture ‘From peace to reconciliation’, on 3 April 2007, provided a unique range of insights into what had, by any reckoning, been a historic series of events. A solicitor by profession, by 2007 he was a highly experienced politician, having represented County Louth for Fianna Fail since 1987. After serving as a Minister of State at the Department of the Taoiseach and

6 Europe as a force for creative reconciliation President Pat Cox Introduction As he reminded his audience, when Pat Cox delivered his lecture on ‘Europe as a force for creative reconciliation’ on 26 April 2004, the reunification of the continent with the accession to the European Union of ten new members was only six days away. As President of the European Parliament, he was privileged to watch this historic development from a unique vantage point. In June 1989, when he was first elected to the Parliament, such a development was barely imaginable. The European

7 Peace and reconciliation in the modern world Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton Introduction Then Senator, Hillary Rodham Clinton opened her lecture on 26 August 2004 by saying that it was a ‘time of great promise and opportunity for the people of Northern Ireland’, when truthfully, many of her listeners there that day would have described a much gloomier picture of an attempt at devolved government that had been stymied for almost a year, with little obvious solution to the impasse in sight. Talks were scheduled for September, 2004, in Leeds Castle; something

gacaca process. This will be the entry point to subsume disparate dynamics and features of the gacaca practice. 2 The truth is an elusive and multidimensional concept. In the report of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission four notions of truth are identified ( TRC-SA, 1998 : 110–17). The forensic truth entails answers to the basic questions of who, where, when, how and against whom and possibly the context, causes and patterns of violations. Other dimensions of the truth – narrative, social and restorative – go beyond this factual delineation

Federation. In fact, the idea of reconciliation had been central in the peace negotiation between Biafra and Nigeria even before the end of the war. People expressed concerns as to whether Biafrans would still be accepted back into the Federation as citizens with full rights. Biafrans, with the fear of genocide also wondered what their fate in the future Federation of Nigeria would be. When the war ended and there was no victor, no vanquished, everybody was happy. Then the Federal

While they awaited trial and possible transfer to Conakry, the revolt and defiant attitudes in the villages was exacerbated. Finally, Sylvain Landry B.

Fraser and Leonie Murray, this book provides a range of unique insights into the issues surrounding peacemaking, delivered by major international figures with direct experience in this area at the highest level. Based on a series of lectures on the theme of ‘Peace’ given under the auspices of the Tip O’Neill Chair in Peace Studies at the University of Ulster’s Magee campus and funded by The Ireland Funds, each lecture is presented with an introduction placing it in its proper context within the discourse on peacemaking. The volume makes an invaluable contribution to the study of peace and conflict studies, international history, international relations and international politics.

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.

with the decision to create a Conciliation Commission, point to a crucial notion, which would assume increasing importance for the UN’s peacekeeping agenda, namely national (re)conciliation. During the Congo episode, the UN gradually began to define its role as a comprehensive conciliator. A growing number of states endorsed, implicitly or explicitly, an unprecedented role for the UN, that is, creating
