Oñati Socio-Legal Series 10(3) - Practices of Memorialization and the Process of Social Reconstruction

01 Jun 2020

The IISL Foundation is proud to announce that Issue nº3 of this year's volume is out. The special issue, titled Practices of Memorialization and the Process of Social Reconstruction, has been coordinated by Martin J.M. Hoondert (Tilburg University) and Gema Varona (University of the Basque Country), who also chaired the workshop where most of the original research works that were later shaped into these articles were presented. According to the issue editors,

This special issue of Oñati Socio-Legal Series is about commemorative practices and their role in post-conflict societies regarding processes of social reconstruction and transitional justice. It also considers current alternatives and complementary systems of justice, like restorative justice and transformative justice to face mass-victimisation. Through practices of memorialization victimhood is defined, constructed, acknowledged or neglected. Their materialisation is often a result of negotiated outcomes involving a number of actors, legislation and institutions. By presenting case studies, the authors hope to enhance practices of memorialization and to critically contribute to the transitional or transformative justice agenda.
