From Conflict Resolution to Reconciliation

Reconciliation is now being considered in the areas of political science and political psychology because of the notion that peacemaking should be looked into with a macrosocietal perspective, thus involving reconciliation among the members of society instead of merely resolving conflict. The formal resolution of conflict usually only involves leaders, undermining the fact that they only account for a small portion of a society and that the members of the society may still be at war with each other. Reconciliation involves modifying motivations, beliefs, and attitudes of the majority, and such activities promote establishing or renewing relations within a group. This chapter looks into the nature of reconciliation as an outcome of a peacemaking and as a process.

Keywords:   reconciliation, political science, political psychology, peacemaking, society, members, majority, nature, outcome, process
