Daniel Philpott

Oxford University Press

This chapter explicates the meaning and content of reconciliation as a concept of justice. It explains what is distinctive about political reconciliation. It then describes how the same concept of justice is also a concept of peace and of mercy. It distinguishes reconciliation from other leading notions of justice, most importantly, the liberal peace. Finally, it offers a defense of this concept of justice from the perspective of the first tradition: restorative justice.

Keywords:   reconciliation, peace, mercy, restorative justice, liberal peace
