A study on the range and impact of reconciliation initiatives

Pathways of Reconciliation is a London-based academic research project that examines the work of non-governmental reconciliation initiatives from around the world, with the aim of developing a systematic understanding of reconciliation in different contexts. The project also aims to draw lessons from case studies towards developing a multifaceted theory of reconciliation. The project also aims to develop a community of researchers, activists and policymakers working on reconciliation, to share ideas and to help advance the topic in research, education, policy and activism.

Objective #1: Build a dataset

The first objective of the project is to compile a comprehensive list of organizations working on reconciliation from around the world and in a range of contexts. By “reconciliation initiatives” we refer to any public initiative that is aimed to engaged society at different levels towards reconciliation in their specific context.

The dataset logs and codes basic open-source information, followed by in-depth information gathered by surveys and interviews. The wide qualitative review of cases enables a comparative examination of the impact of different approaches to reconciliation in different contexts.
