A FORGIVENESS-BASED APPROACH: AN ANALYSIS OF FORGIVENESS AND ITS USES IN THE BASQUE CONFLICT

Project description

The role of forgiveness in the Basque conflict

Forgiveness emerged as an important factor in political transition processes such as the shift from dictatorship to democracy or the end of civil conflicts. The consequences of forgiveness are not only of moral or religious character but also have political, social and legal aspects that complicate the perception of its conditions and goals. The EU-funded FORGIVEBASQ project will study the practice of forgiveness in the Basque conflict and the role it plays in the existing peace process. It will develop a theoretical model on forgiveness by adopting a philosophical method that integrates a transversal moral, political and social perspective allowing to clarify its complex transformations and varied practices. The project will also conduct a diachronic study of forgiveness in the Basque context.
