Department of Political Sociology, Institute of Sociology of the Czech Academy of Sciences invites you to the lecture of prof. Roman David (Lingnan University, Hong Kong) Political Apologies, their Content, and Protagonists: Experimental Evidence from Victims and Perpetrators Nations.

Political apologies are recognized as a feature of effective diplomacy, projections of soft power, and instances of transitional justice. They have been found to have a positive effect on justice, trust, and reconciliation. However, the efficacy of apologies has also been questioned. This talk examines the acceptance of political apologies, their content and the protagonists in the victim-nation, the perpetrator-nation, and their subgroups.
