Daniel Philpott opens the 2013 Lenten series of forums: The Way of Reconciliation: From Injury to Restoration.
How can justice be achieved and peace restored where the wounds of war, genocide, and dictatorship are so deep? Is there a universal standard that will work for people of diverse and often conflicting religious, cultural, and philosophical backgrounds? In this forum, political scientist, Daniel Philpott will explore the notion of political reconciliation as a means to restore justice in the aftermath of widespread injustice.
