Global Injustices and the Ethics of Political Reconciliation

Käte Hamburger Lecture

Prof. Dr Henning Hahn Visiting Professor, Institute of Philosophy, FU Berlin

Date: Wednesday 8th May 2019 (6:00-7:30 p.m.)

Venue: Gerhard Mercator Haus, Lotharstr. 57, 47057 Duisburg


Initially, the idea of political reconciliation plays an important role in debates on transitional justice. It defines a transition process from a state of severe injustice or conflict to a state of renewed social peace and cooperation. This understanding is based on the precedence of South Africa’s shift from apartheid to democracy and, in particular, by the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in the 1990s. Since then, the practice and theory of political reconciliations have been further enriched in the aftermath of regime changes, international conflicts and civil wars.
