Countries emerging from repression, armed conflict, or mass atrocities have sought ways to address the past as a part of their transition into new forms of governance and citizenship. In this introduction to the topic, Barbara Frey will review some of the methods and mechanisms that have been developed by national and international actors, including public memorials, truth commissions, and national or international criminal prosecutions to assist societies to transition away from their repressive pasts.

Organized by the IAS Reframing Mass Violence: Human Rights and Social Memory in Latin America and Southern Europe Collaborative. Cosponsored by the Human Rights Program, and the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.
