….one plenary session was devoted to the Unification movement. Eileen Barker assessed its role within the context of Eastern and Western new religious movements, Dan Feffermann presented the different schisms following the death of Reverend Moon in 2012, and I focused on one of such schisms, the Family Peace Association (FPA) led by Moon’s oldest surviving son, Preston Moon. The president of FPA offered a response, and the discussion that followed showed how controversial the question of succession and authority remains within the Unification movement.
