Should reconciliation be mandated in countries with genocidal activity?
Every continent has experienced instances of genocidal activity, especially in the past century. From the Holocaust in Europe to Cambodia to Rwanda to Aboriginal Australia to Native people in the Americas, there have been mass killings and forced migrations and government sponsored injustices against minority groups.
Should countries with a history of genocidal activity be forced to recognize their actions and work towards reconciliation OR is the past best left in the past?
To what degree should the international community be involved in a reconciliation process?
What do we do after the genocide is over?
