2015-2017 ARC Discovery Project

Chief Investigator: Associate Professor Marguerite La Caze
PhD Candidate: Elese Dowden
Research Assistant: Terrilyn Sweep
Contemporary political ethics has to face the question of how to repair relations which have broken down after crimes, oppression, and political violence. Using the work of European and feminist philosophers to examine historical and recent cases: post-liberation France, post-genocide Rwanda and post-colonial Australasia and neighbouring countries, this project develops a philosophical account of ethical restoration through focusing on just punishment, forgiveness, reconciliation, building trust, and atonement. The outcomes are a series of journal articles and a monograph. The project contributes to debates and practices concerning restoration of peace and justice and to international scholarship on these issues.
