The Forgiveness PROJECT...



2017 Annual Lecture by Richard Holloway, chaired by Shami Chakrabarti,

11 October 2017 - London, UK

In just four weeks, our seventh Annual Lecture will take place with award winning writer and broadcaster, Richard Holloway. In this lecture Richard will explore “The Politics of Forgiveness”, and will be joined by Shadow Attorney General, Shami Chakrabarti who will be chairing the event.
Richard Holloway is the author of thirty books. His book On Forgiveness was described by author Philip Pullman as “Full of human wisdom....a psychologically absorbing approach to a very important subject". To get a taste of Richard's compassionate and original thinking, watch this interview for the BBC's HARDtalk programme.

In this lecture, Richard will explore forgiveness on a social and political level, and will ask whether a culture that cannot practice forgiveness breeds people who cannot change and grow.
