Healing: Beyond Reconciliation
Healing that results from a truth procedure that demands
great trust and effort could help bring about a radical break not
only in arenas rife with conflicts (e.g. Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti), but also
in places where there is relative peace (e.g. USA).
Jacques Depelchin is from the DR Congo. He is Executive Director of
Ota Benga Alliance for Peace, Healing and Dignity in the DR Congo and
in the USA, a non-profit dedicated to transforming relations within
the DR Congo and the USA, as well as between both countries. He
recently taught a course in Peace and Conflict Studies at UC
Berkeley, Intra and International Conflicts in Sub-Saharan Africa.
His most recent book is Silences in African History: Between the
Syndromes of Discovery and Abolition (2006). He is currently working
on a sequel to Silences.
