Spaces for Reconciliation and Justice

WISCOMP supported Mr. Harsh Mander, Managing Trustee, Aman Biradari Trust, in a project to study processes of justice and reconciliation in Gujarat. Titled, Communal Socio-political Movements in Independent India: Spaces for Reconciliation and Justice, the project had two components.

• Action research that documents the activities of community based teams in Gujarat engaged in processes of reconciliation that include but also go beyond processes of legal justice. The action research was being systematically documented through a monthly newsletter.

• Academic research, which will looked at how practice and theory could be synergized in the new and emerging field of Reconciliation.
