Reconciliation Forum


On 18-20 March 2009, Chairman of the ECTR Aleksander Kwaśniewski took part in The Reconciliation Forum

Forum brought together prominent leaders, academics, activists, politicians, artists, cultural icons and many others to create a unique event. Through a series of compelling roundtable conversations, session discussions, keynote speeches and live performances, the abc* Foundation engaged these leaders in creating a dialogue about the urgency for reconciliation in conflicts across the globe.

During three days, a host of brilliant speakers inspired the audience to think differently, to emerge from their apathy, to act and, most importantly, to embrace the power of reconciliation. The forum covered a wide range of topics, from the injustices in Latin America to the humanitarian disaster in Darfur. The recurrent theme was that change is possible if we stand up and act on it.
