Forgiving Prisoners

The aim of the Forgiving Prisoners project is to examine the connection between imprisonment and prisoners’ perspective on love and forgiveness for individuals who had spent part of their life in prison while struggling for justice and peace for their communities and nations at large. From Gandhi to Mandela, from Aung San Suu Kyi to Martin Luther King Jr., many prominent leaders in governing professions spent a part of their life in prison. The project was conceived on the premise that individual leader’s capacity to shape government and communities through insights, reflections and inspiration acquired while in prison is extremely important for governance.
