Restorative peacemaking speakers in NZ

Intergroup Conflict and Restorative Peacemaking: The Astonishing Power of Unusual Friendships

Two prominent religious leaders in Nigeria – one a Muslim Imam, the other a Christian Pentecostal Pastor – grew up nursing deep hatred for each other’s religious communities. Both belonged to militant groups and both swore vengeance against the other for losses suffered. But, after a chance meeting through intermediaries, they committed to working together for reconciliation and formed a deep friendship.

Recipients of numerous awards and honours from around the world, Dr Muhammad Ashafa and Dr James Wuye are in New Zealand to tell their story, as we struggle to come to terms with the Christchurch massacre.
