The Transitional Justice Institute and Healing Through Remembering invite you to the launch and discussion of the book "Localising Memory in Transitional Justice: The Dynamics and Informal Practices of Memorialisation after Mass Violence and Dictatorship", edited by Mina Rauschenbach, Julia Viebach and Stephan Parmentier (Routledge, 2022).

The book seeks to make sense of practices of commemoration and memorialisation of various mnemonic communities in societies marked by legacies of massive human rights abuses, and to make visible the complex and oftentimes troubled entanglements between justice endeavours, locality, and memory-making.

It offers valuable and new insights on how and under what conditions localised memory practices may contribute to recognition and social transformation and how they may at best be inclusive, or exclusive, of dynamic and diverse memories.
