Virtual Workshop: Developing Survey Measures of Punishment, Revenge, and Forgiveness in Post-Conflict Settings

   

Overview

On February 19, 22, and 23, GLD Senior Research Fellow Kristen Kao hosted a virtual workshop on "Developing Survey Measures of Punishment, Revenge, and Forgiveness in Post-Conflict Settings" with project collaborators Kristin Fabbe (Harvard Business School) and Michael Bang Petersen (Aarhus University). For three hours each day, a group of scholars met to discuss the concepts of just punishment, revenge, and forgiveness, as well as to provide feedback on survey drafts for GLD's "From Revenge to Forgiveness" project.  Michael McCullough, Everett Worthington, Roger Petersen, James Gibson, Fotini Christia, Salma Mousa, Karin Dyrstad, Alexandra Hartman, Mara Revkin, Muslih Irwani, Dan Posner, and Marsin AlShamari all participated, and we would like to thank them for their extremely helpful contributions.

The workshop was part of the "From Revenge to Forgiveness: Strengthening Durable Peace in Post-Conflict Societies" project, funded by Riksbanken Jubileumsfond and the Folke Bernadotte Academy
