Overview

Commemoration as Conflict: Space, Memory and Identity in Peace Processes by S. McDowell, M. Braniff

McDowell and Braniff explore the relationship between commemoration and conflict in societies which have engaged in peace processes, attempting to unpack the ways in which the practices of memory and commemoration influence efforts to bring armed conflict to an end and whether it can even reactivate conflict as political circumstances change.
