Religion and conflict resolution: Christianity and South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Megan Shore: book review
MetadataShow full item record
"Religion and conflict resolution", as field of study, may be viewed as a relatively new area of specialization in contemporary international studies and more specifically in political studies. This may be attributed to the fact that religion has made a dramatic comeback into the public arena after decades of marginalization, and that it has gradually played a positive role in developmental affairs internationally. In the light of these developments, Megan Shore - who is a staff at the University of Western Ontario in Canada - decidedly paid attention to this area by giving particular attention to the way Christianity influenced the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and the general outcomes in this post-conflict nation-state.
