Abstract: The first part – focused on the concepts of national sovereignty and international solidarity – collects analysis of the increasingly complex relationship between national sovereignty and international solidarity and reflections on the delicate power balance between an increasingly weak sovereignty and an increasingly strong solidarity. The authors discuss the theoretical and historical background of the Westphalia system, creating a sort of ideal excursion that includes both a reading of the past and a projection into the future. Starting from a rethinking of international relations in the era of globalization up to an analysis of contemporary events, the implications of a balance between the nation-state weakness and the growing strength of international solidarity are taken into account.
The second part outlines the extremely relevant concept of national reconciliation, illustrating its building elements. The not easy processes of restorative justice related to national reconciliation are elaborated and contextualized in Italian, South African, Chilean, Angolan, Croatian and French cases. The examples from Ireland, Argentine, Cambodia, Croatia, sub-Saharan Africa and Asian republics of the CIS give the geopolitical coordinates within which the transition strategies – of which each national reconciliation is inherently bearer – are focused.
