Reconciliation and Peace

Under the guest editorship of Laura E. Reimer, Research Associate at the Arthur V. Mauro Institute for Peace and Justice, and Adjunct Professor in Peace and Conflict Studies and Human Rights at the University of Manitoba, Peace Review: A Journal of Social Justice 35(1) invites essays for a special issue on Reconciliation and Peace.

We welcome submissions for a special issue that explores the many forms and realities of reconciliation as peacebuilding and conflict transformation within and among nations, countries, communities, peoples, and organizations. Both historical and contemporary conceptualizations of reconciliation are welcome as are theoretical and topical ruminations on what and how reconciliation can be considered in relation to alternative models of addressing disputes. This issue is an effort to present the depth of hope PACS scholars offer through the full spectrum of reconciliation literature, ideas, frameworks, experiences, and applied theory. While we imagine the bulk of submissions will come from academics in peacebuilding, politics and international studies we also encourage activist, business and community level explorations or reconciliation.

General themes that contributors can address in their essays include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Meanings of reconciliation
  • Trauma and reconciliation
  • Ethnic reconciliation
  • Post-war reconciliation
  • Indigenous reconciliation
  • Models of reconciliation
  • Protracted reconciliation
  • Theoretical reconciliation
  • Policy and reconciliation
  • Human rights and reconciliation
  • A shared future and reconciliation
  • Leadership and reconciliation
  • Social movements and reconciliation
  • Race and reconciliation
  • Democracy and reconciliation
  • The law and reconciliation
  • Critical theory and reconciliation
  • War and reconciliation
  • COVID-19 and reconciliation
