Your new role
Dealing with a violent past poses considerable challenges for many societies around the world. It has become clear that, in the course of increasing globalisation, questions about how to deal with the legacy of colonialism are gaining new urgency. Dealing with these burdens will have a considerable impact on the joint capacity to act in terms of development and peace policies. In the German context, the handling of colonial collections and German colonial history in Namibia is currently under discussion. A number of questions also arise for the church in this context. The German commission Justitia et Pax is therefore currently exploring what its focus area “coming to terms with the colonial legacy” might look like.
It is clear that even in the concept phase of a multi-year focus area, systematic involvement of partners from the Global South should be sought.
