BETWEEN ENCLAVEMENT AND EMBRACEMENT: PERSPECTIVES ON THE ROLE OF RELIGION IN RECONCILIATION IN SOUTH AFRICA
AbstractThis article takes a brief look at two indicators of the state of reconciliation in South Africa, provided by the National Planning Commission of the Government, as well as the South African Reconciliation Barometer survey, initiated by the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation. This is followed by a description of some theological efforts that have been made to outline spaces for cultural inter-facing within the South African context, and the article is concluded with a reference to the tension between the syndrome of ‘enclavement’, and the theological metaphor of ‘embracement’, as proposed by Miroslav Volf. doi: 10.7833/111-1-31
