Tenth "Africa in Front of Us" Seminar: "Reconsidering Reconciliation Policy of Society after Conflict: Focusing on South Africa after Post-apartheid"

published: 2014-07-22

Event Overview


Conflicts of Religions/Races have brought about a lot of division and animosity. How should we repair its damage? Also, what kinds of systems and norms can there be for the direction to seek both social reintegration of the victimizers and ways of assistance of the victims? Prof. Toshihiro Abe of Otani University has conducted research on these kinds of questions based on such themes as the approach to reconciliation of South Africa after apartheid for a long time.

In this seminar Prof. Abe will talk both about a trial of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and a theoretical mark over the reconciliation theory. Then he will have a conversation on accommodation and justice with Prof. Akira Inoue of Ritsumeikan University.

Let's take ourselves to a stone's throw from Africa.
