Chijioke John Ojukwu is PhD student at Leeds Metropolitan University, School of Applied Global Ethics ( His thesis deals with the question of reconciliation and respect for human life in nonviolent resistance. He is especially interested in examples of nonviolent resistance where reconciliation was manifested, such as the Civil Rights Movement and the anti-apartheid struggle. He further explores the respect for human life through a cultural perspective, using the Igbo ritual of « Breaking the Kola nut », which is an act of hospitality and can be seen as an act of nonviolence.
