NEWS: Clare Short asked the question can there be Forgiveness without Justice? The Forgiveness Project Annual Lecture 2011

On 6th October we held our second annual at Union Chapel, Islington to an audience of 500 people. The lecture ‘No Forgiveness Without Justice?’ was delivered by Clare Short, MP for Birmingham Ladywood 1983-2010 and Secretary of State for International Development 1997-2003.

Chaired by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown of The Independent, Clare Short’s lecture was preceded by three story-tellers – Colin Parry, who lost his son in the IRA Warrington bomb in 1993, and two speakers from The Forgiveness Project: Elizabeth Turner, whose husband was killed while at a business meeting in the World Trade Centre on 11th September 2001, and Bassam Aramin, a Palestinian whose 10-year-old daughter was killed by an Israeli soldier and who is a founding member of Combatants for Peace.
