9783639165043: Wounded Healers & Reconciliation Fatigue: The Search for Social Justice & Sustainable Development in South Africa

How do NGOs' understandings of reconciliation differ from those of their clients within a larger project of national healing? How do staff at these NGOs balance remembering the past with nation-building and international development when they may be victims themselves? Why do certain groups and individuals continue to feel marginalized so long after liberation? And how might NGOs in South Africa constitute a reconciliation social movement? Wounded Healers argues that while South Africans have been reconciling apartheid-era abuses since 1994, ongoing reconciliation struggles of individuals must not be overlooked within the larger quest for national healing. Focusing on memorialization, missing persons, 30,000R reparation payouts, as well as on the continued oppression of marginalized identity based on culture, race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and HIV and AIDS, this ethnographic analysis will appeal to all those interested in post-conflict democratization, NGOs, international development, non-Western communication, conflict & peace-building, communication education, ethnography, cultural anthropology, activism, Africa, and anyone interested in global social justice.

Review:

This book is extremely informative in reference to the healing of nations and the injustices they may experience. Remembering those individuals who may fall between the cracks, so to speak, is as important as the entire nation's healing. In order for a nation, as well as, an individual to obtain some sense of closure there are many things that can be done to accomplish this. Being able to move, not only through it, but beyond it is just as important. We need to remember how important it is to work for new goals in our lives; even after suffering some of these horrors. I don't believe anyone could ever "forget" - but we can strive to make our lives count for something. We can strive to create our own legacy that can be passed down through generations. We can make a difference, even if, we have been horrifically abused or tortured. Personally, I would like to see more, from this author, focusing on exactly that; the healing of the individual and the differences between a nation's healing and the individual's healing. Collectively, healing as a group is not the same as an individual's. A group finds great strength in the group; a common thread, a bond. But an individual does not have that same bond. They suffer alone, they are isolated. The challenges are not the same, neither is the healing process. For anyone who is interested in social justice and the healing process, I highly recommend this book. --D. Reaves
