Karen Brouneus on reconciliation

From Summer Nights, 7:10 pm on 30 December 2013

Psychologist Dr. Karen Brouneus studied the effects of the Solomon Islands' Truth and Reconciliation Commission, following similar research she did during the Rwandan TRC. After interviewing victims, witnesses to, and militants from the Solomons conflict, she discusses whether true remorse, forgiveness, and reconciliation are ever possible, and whether victims can be harmed by the process of seeking national peace.
