Join us for a one-day workshop with Piet Meiring, former Commissioner of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission, entitled, “The Perennial Quest for Truth and Reconciliation: Learning from one another’s experiences.”
Lasting reconciliation rests upon truth – but how does one find “the truth” in any situation? How does one handle a dangerous or even destructive truth?
Using his experience with Truth and Reconciliation Commissions in South Africa and elsewhere around the world, Piet Meiring will examine the complexities of truth and justice in the journey toward reconciliation. A comparison of the South African and Canadian experiences as well as insights from those experienced in the field will be included in the workshop.
