Abstract

This panel investigates the role of historical memory in contemporary conflicts. Focusing on various cases in the post-Soviet space (Ukraine, Georgia, the Russian North Caucasus) and beyond, it aims to explore the ways in which history and memory impact on political thinking and action, and how they are used in coping with the losses and traumas and as an instrument in the reconfiguration of political communities. The panel also critically engages with the processes of the restoration of justice and reflects on how they have been used for political contestation in the present.
