The Forgiveness ProjectThe Forgiveness Project was founded in 2004 in response to the invasion of Iraq. As a way of countering the rhetoric of retaliation so prominent at that time, journalist Marina Cantacuzino set out to collect stories from victims and perpetrators who had chosen to resolve conflict through dialogue and restorative means.
Examining themes of forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict transformation, this book brings together the personal testimonies of both survivors and perpetrators of crime and violent acts and asks the question whether forgiveness may have more currency than revenge in an age which seems locked into the cycle of conflict.
