Then, and only then, may we speak of a proper collective political apology. Official apologies can fail, however, if the ‘rhetorical agency’ (Villadsen 2008, 34), which is necessary for convincingly speaking on the behalf of a collective, is lacking or inadequate. A number of factors have been identified and are currently tested in a research project on ‘Apologies and Reconciliation in International Relations’ at the University of Munich (Daase and Engert 2008). 3 With regard to the person who makes an apology, two aspects seem to be crucial: status and role.
