Revenge and Forgiveness

As we face continuing hostilities in the Middle East, can forgiveness become a strategy for a sustainable ceasefire?

South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission demonstrated the power of forgiveness to transform long-standing conflicts. Does it depend on an unfounded trust in the possibilities of reformation? Does it fuel the depravities of those who know they will be granted freedom from prosecution? Or does is offer a means of escape from a life of dependency on the perpetrator? Speakers: Gabrielle Rifkind, psychotherapist and consultant to the Oxford Research Group; Martin Snodden, former UVF paramilitary; James Smith, genocide expert, Aegis Trust; Nurit Pele-Elhanan, whose daughter was killed by a suicide bomb in Jerusalem in 1997; and Jo Berry, daughter of 'Brighton bomb' victim, Sir Anthony Berry, MP. In the chair: writer and broadcaster, Simon Fanshawe.
