Retribution: Forgiving your father's killer | Retribution and the riots | The psychology of revenge.

Can forgiveness ever be a form of retribution? Jo Berry’s father was killed by an IRA bomb, yet she sought out the man responsible to try to understand his motivations. Since then she has worked to resolve conflict by breaking the cycle of vengeance through her charity Building Bridges for Peace. Hear her story.

Prof. Tim Newburn is a Professor of Criminology and Social Policy at the LSE, and the co-author of the highly acclaimed ‘Reading the Riots’ project. Tim will be helping us to understand society’s need for retribution, it’s role within gang culture, and how its role changes during times of social unrest.

Are you a vengeful person? To find out we’ve asked leading neuroscientist Dr Molly Crockett to step away from her experimental psychology lab at the University of Oxford to help the Salon audience to evaluate in some scientific detail our own morality and altruism as she presents The Psychology of Revenge. 

We will also be showing a short film by Creating Freedom's Alex Dower
