About the Roundtable:
Nelson Mandela’s vision of citizenship was shaped by the idea of a world in which the other matters – an ideal grounded in the quest for South Africans to establish a richer sense of their identity as members of a human community.
This colloquium aims to focus attention on new insights that the South African transition under Nelson Mandela’s leadership introduced to the literature on the aftermath of mass trauma and violence.
The colloquium is also an opportunity for reflection on critical questions about Nelson Mandela’s legacy, such as: What might the future look like for the next generation if the response to Nelson Mandela’s legacy is the pursuit of reconciliation and social justice.
