This chapter analyzes four practices of reconciliation-building institutions for social justice, acknowledgment, reparations, and apology. For each practice, the chapter shows how it has taken place over the past generation or so. Then, the chapter shows how each practice reflects the core commitments of the ethic of reconciliation. Next, it shows which primary and secondary restorations each practice performs and how each does so. Finally, it also explores particular moral and conceptual dilemmas that attend each practice.

Keywords: social justice; acknowledgment; reparations; apology
