Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the eleventh issue of the Dialogues on Historical Justice and Memory Network News (formerly Historical Justice and Memory Research Network News). The Network, which operates from www.historicaldialogues.org, provides information and resources for scholars and activists working on issues of historical justice and social and public memory to encourage innovative interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative research.

The Dialogues on Historical Justice and Memory Network is a joint initiative of the Historical Justice and Memory Research Network (HJMRN), housed at the Swinburne Institute for Social Research, Swinburne University of Technology, in Melbourne, and Columbia University’s Alliance for Historical Dialogue and Accountability (AHDA), at the Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR) in New York. It draws on an international team of collaborators and affiliates.

We draw your attention to our latest book reviews, including:

‘Accounts of the Conflict’ Digital Archive Project, INCORE

The University of Ulster is to establish a £1.2m digital archive project at its Magee campus. Called ‘Accounts of the Conflict’ the project will be housed at the International Conflict Research Institute (INCORE), and will offer long-term storage and preservation of stories related to life in Northern Ireland and the border region during the period of the conflict.

Swisspeace – Essential Archives for a Peace Future

The records and testimonies collected by truth commissions are integral in a society’s efforts to deal with past atrocities. These archives demonstrate the truth commission’s legitimacy, and represent its legacy as a transitional justice mechanism. Archives pertaining to human rights violations are vital for upholding the right to know, and for guaranteeing non-recurrence.
