Handbook Dialogue No. 11
What is the role of different approaches for dealing with painful memories and violent pasts? How do different dimensions – interpersonal and intergroup relations, memories and identities at the individual and collective level – relate to one another? Can one constructively address victim identities and cultures of victimhood that may stem from painful and traumatic experiences? This Dialogue looks into the inter-connectedness of psychological dynamics and social processes in post-war societies. Scholars and practitioners draw on experiences from Northern Ireland, South Africa, the Caucasus, the Balkans and Latin America.
