Nouvelle co-publication d’Anne-Marie Reynaud!
Kumala-Sakti, V. and Reynaud, A-M (2017) “Understanding Reconciliation through Reflexive Practice: Ethnographic Examples from Canada and Timor Leste” in Ethnographic Peace Research: Approaches and Tensions, Gearoid Millar (ed.), Basingstoke, England: Palsgrave Macmillan
This chapter explores the ways reflexive practice guided two anthropologists through methodological and ethical concerns. In their research, Sakti and Reynaud both examined the ways societies deal with legacies of violence, albeit on different sides of the globe. Sakti in Timor-Leste and Indonesia, where she explored social repair among a conflict-divided community, and Reynaud in Quebec, where she explored experiences of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement alongside Algonquin survivors. As this chapter illustrates, their understanding of reconciliation as ongoing trust building or rebuilding (Govier and Verwoerd 2002) transpires not only in the way they conducted their studies, but also in how they considered issues of positionality and ethics. They argue that putting into practice their understanding of reconciliation was key to making their fieldwork ‘successful’.
