Dealing with Reconciliation: A Theoretical Framework and its Policy Fundaments

Ignasi Torrent Oliva

This working paper aims to stress the need for coherence between theory and practice in regard of the process of reconciliation in a post-conflict context. The text first analyses the fundaments of conflict and its causes from a critical perspective. From this analysis, the article moves forward with the exposition of a theoretical framework for reconciliation taking into account the pitfalls pointed in the previous analysis. Finally the author describes a couple of implemented policies aimed at reconciliation implemented in the Basque Country and Bosnia-Herzegovina, respectively. Through the description of these two practices implemented in real scenarios, the author reinforces the theoretical model for reconciliation and the link to its policy outcome.
