Just and Unjust Peace

Daniel Philpott

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the liberal criticism that religious justifications for reconciliation do not belong in politics. It first shows that religion is pervasive in the global politics of reconciliation. It then answers the criticisms that religious claims are destabilizing and that religious claims are disrespectful. Finally, it proposes an ethic of political engagement that expands on the concept of “rooted reason” in Chapter 1.
