Establishing a shared identity is an important part of any process of peace and reconciliation. This book discusses issues and theories of identity formation that can be implemented for peace and reconciliation from the perspectives of theology and religious studies, whilst interacting with politics, socio-cultural studies and economics. By focusing on the theme of peace and reconciliation, and employing an interdisciplinary approach, this volume will make a significant contribution to the discussion of the situation of the Korean peninsula, and wider global contexts. The volume explores theoretical issues such as political and economic implications of reconciliation; interfaith and biblical perspectives; and the role of religion in peace making. Furthermore the contributors examine practical implications of the theme in the contexts of Germany, Northern Ireland, South Africa, India, East Asia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and the Korean peninsula. The book offers invaluable insights for policy-makers, academics, and lay leaders, besides being an important tool for researchers and students of theology, religion, sociology, politics and history.

Review:

'A most welcome addition to the field. The focus on Korea in many of the chapters is particularly welcome, since Korea has received much less attention than South Africa and Latin America in reconciliation literature. There is a healthy balance between theological reflection and social/historical analysis that brings out identity issues and links these to peace and reconciliation. This book is an exceptional resource for discussions of peace and reconciliation, public theology and the challenges facing Korea and other divided societies.' David Tombs, Trinity College Dublin 'At a time when peace-making is often viewed from a clinical point of view (in the sense of skills associated with conflict resolution and mediation), the book explores how religion can be put to use for the real political work of promoting reconciliation in deeply scarred countries. The book makes a strong case for the way religion can be employed in a more activist way - in a way that we have not always seen in recent years, where religious organisations all too often stood at the side while conflicts brewed.' Journal of Contemporary Religion
