What is the relationship between forgiveness and reconciliation? Is reconciliation possible without forgiveness and vice versa? What does reconciliation require? What about forgiveness? These are some of the questions students will address as they explore the nature and the processes involved in forgiveness and reconciliation, particularly within the context of divided communities. This course will also address the root causes of conflict creating hostilities, affecting human relationships and tearing communities apart in the process. Students will explore the psycho-emotional, religio-cultural, philosophical and political aspects of forgiveness and reconciliation, ranging from personal, interpersonal, national and international levels, respectively.
