The conclusion sets forth five reasons why the ethic of political reconciliation matters. First, it matters because justice matters intrinsically. Second, it matters because justice motivates the actual players in the politics of dealing with the past. Third, the ethic contains implications for action, including criteria for judging actions and guidance into making choices about actions. Fourth, the ethic is distinct from other leading paradigms for peacebuilding. Fifth, the ethic makes a place for the contribution of religious traditions to the ethics of peacebuilding and brings them into conversation with secular thinking.
