Legal Frames of Memory. Transitional Justice in Central and Eastern Europe

Legal Frames of Memory. Transitional Justice in Central and Eastern Europe

Date: November 27-29, 2013
Site: Warsaw, Poland
Organiser: European Network Remembrance and Solidarity

This conference aims to examine transitional justice as an area not only of state activity but also that
of various social groups. The organisers seek to examine the processes of negotiating and administering justice as an area where the social memory of the communist period was shaped, both at a system level and at the level of grassroots social movements. In this context, the conference is planned to examine the relationship between law and memory. The organisers will be interested in law as a framework of social memory from the perspective of legitimizing certain norms, values, and visions of the past, and also toward developing a framework of grassroots social activity wherein individuals and groups promote certain interests and historical narratives. They will moreover cover the way legal discourse merges with other aspects of social life, including the concepts of justice defined in the works of historians, media, and cultural texts. The subjects of the conference include, but are not limited to: retributive justice, i.e., trials, decommunization and vetting; restorative justice, i.e., rehabilitation of political prisoners, restitution of nationalized property, compensation; institutes of national remembrance and the issue of access to the files of the communist security apparatus; representations of concepts of justice in historical work, media, or cultural texts.
