“Healing the Wounds of History” Conference

Planting Trees at the Garden of Forgiveness

 “Healing the Wounds of History” Conference

November 11-13, 2011 at LAU Byblos in Lebanon

This three-day conference initiated by the Centre for Lebanese Studies launched the “Healing the Wounds of History” Program.

The main concepts addressed at the conference were the following: 1) causes for violence are rooted in recent but also older and even ancient historical grievances, memories and traumas, 2) how memories of the past can keep conflict alive, consciously and unconsciously, which invoke the formation of certain sectarian and social identities and 3) proposing an onward route for approaches to healing, reconciliation and forgiveness.

A thirty-minute documentary of the conference proceedings  has been  released. If you would like a copy of this, please contact [email protected]
