Abstract
This Panel examines how states deal with the legacy and memories of political violence. Among the mechanisms it explores are truth recovery processes such as truth commissions, as well as amnesties and the drive for historical prosecutions. It looks too at examples where states have engaged in organised ‘forgetting’ of the memory and legacies of a conflict.
