Título: Seeking forgiveness in an intergroup context: angolan, guinean, mozambican, and east timorense perspectives
Data de publicação: 2007
Resumo: Forgiveness is a key concept in many governance and responsive regulationissues. The notion of intergroup forgiveness was examined among people fromfour countries: Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, and East Timor. Ninehundred and eighty-five adults who had suffered from the many conflicts intheir areas, either personally or through injuries inflicted on members oftheir family, agreed to participate in a study that was specifically aboutseeking intergroup forgiveness. In all four countries, most participants ofthe study agreed with the ideas that (i) seeking intergroup forgivenessmakes sense; (ii) the seeking process must be a popular, democratic, andpublic process, not a secret elite negotiation; (iii) the process must beinitiated and conducted by people in charge politically, not by dissidentfactions; and (iv) the process is aimed at reconciliation, not athumiliating the group requesting forgiveness. Differences between the fourcountries were found regarding the extent to which (i) internationalorganizations may be involved in the process; (ii) the demand must includethe former perpetrators; and (iii) emotions and material compensation areingredients in the process.
