The global reconciliation discourse and its local performance
Judith Renner

12 Responsibility, justice, and reconciliation in Northern Ireland Cillian McGrattan In an August 2014 interview, which was widely covered north and south of the border, the US diplomat and former senior aide to Bill Clinton, Nancy Soderberg, launched a blistering attack on Northern Ireland’s political class.

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

IN the preceding chapter the five central strands of the theory of critical idealism articulated over the course of this book are woven together. The first appears for the first time in the introduction. It is indicated there that the most radical route to reconciliation between the various factions of humanity, and hence to positive freedom for citizens, can be ascertained by comparing the different

philosophy provides the broad outlines of a theory of critical idealism that bears directly upon the organisation of the labour process and the first condition of legitimate law concerning humanity and external nature. Toward the end it will be seen that in the first instance legitimate law requires reconciliation between humanity and external nature, and that this, in turn, requires a form of libertarian socialism whose basic contours

Dramatising the TRC 2 Dramatising the Truth and Reconciliation Commission: the role of theatre practitioners in exploring the past Throw a clatter of memories at the mirror of your life and watch the pieces scatter on the ground. There’s no pattern. They glint in the shadows, demanding inspection as you hesitate to choose which one you’ll pick up first. Some pieces choose themselves, however much you try to avoid them. (Hugh Lewin, 2011: 17) The end of apartheid brought with it many changes, including changes to the memories with which we engage. The TRC and
