Introduction: Why Reconciliation?

Show Summary Details


Identifying the roots of conflict and resolving such conflict does not necessarily promote stable peace or prevent new conflicts from coming about. Reconciliation, however, is believed to be essential for converting current peace into a more stable peace. Studying reconciliation entails the participation of experts and researchers from several different fields because reconciliation is viewed to be multidisciplinary. This project, which is initiated by two research departments from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, approaches the notion of reconciliation through the perspective of international relations, philosophy, psychology, sociology, history, and political science.

Keywords: conflict; peace; reconciliation; multidisciplinary; international relations; philosophy; psychology; sociology; history; political science
