Sixth Annual Conference of the Historical Dialogues, Justice and Memory Network

The Historical Dialogues, Justice and Memory Network is an organisation that provides a platform for researchers and activists working on issues of historical dialogue, historical and transitional justice, and public and social memory. From 1-3 December 2016 they will organise their Sixth Annual Conference: Confronting Violent Pasts and Historical (In)Justice. The NIOD, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies will host the Conference in Amsterdam. Their Conference Theme aims to discuss what happens after the violence and the ad-hoc trials, a phase in which we can begin to assess the impact on societies from which the perpetrators and/or victims emerged. Questions like: “Is there a right timing for addressing the violent past? Should and could historians and historical dialogue play a more instrumental role in these processes?”
