About Global Reconciliation:

Global Reconciliation is an ambitious and innovative, Australian-initiated network of people and
organisations around the world seeking to research and promote ‘reconciliation’ – that is, dialogue and practical engagements across cultural, religious, racial and other differences. Global Reconciliation has conducted international conferences and initiated collaborative projects in more than 50 countries. Our partners include government and non-government organisations, academic institutions, professional associations and community based groups. The core idea underlying our work is that everyday practices can be used to foster reconciliation. We aim to draw together the diverse resources of communities around the world to establish specific, outcome focused projects which enhance learning, understanding and health in all countries involved. Our efforts concentrate on the broad themes of health and wellbeing, education and research, arts, spirituality, and sport – and their ethical and intercultural dimensions.
