Comparing Reconciliation Actions within and between Countries

(p.81) 4 Comparing Reconciliation Actions within and between Countries
From Conflict Resolution to Reconciliation

Louis Kriesberg

Oxford University Press

On a societal level, certain ways of settling conflicts have been developed in certain countries, and these ways usually involve reconciling the antagonists and re-establishing social relations. Traditionally, significant figures who serve as leaders in a society have always played major roles in restoring civility through certain rituals. The situation, however, is different when both ends of the conflict are viewed to be antagonists because of the absence of shared reconciliation traditions. Although shared rules regarding proper behavior are practiced at peacetime, such rules are neglected during times of war. This chapter attempts to identify the different types of reconciliation measures and approaches that would enable stable and well-established relations, especially between antagonists.

Keywords:   antagonists, society, social relations, shared rules, tradition, reconciliation actions
