International Conference “Transnational and Global Dimensions of Justice and Memory Processes in Europe and Latin America”
This conference aimed to take stock of the transnational turn in justice and memory studies and to develop a socio-historical analysis of the circulation of norms, repertoires of collective action and models adopted to deal with the legacies of authoritarian regimes and armed conflicts. It sought to trace the interconnections and mutual influences of these processes both within Europe and Latin America and between the two regions, as well as the mobilizations of European and Latin American actors in international institutions, global NGOs, or at venues on other continents. The conference, held on 8-9 June, 2017 in Paris, was organized by the University of Paris Ouest Nanterre, the Institut de Sciences Sociales du Politique (CNRS), and the University of Exeter. Silvana Mandolessi presented the paper “Transnational Memories on Disappearance: The Ayotzinapa Case” in a panel entitled “Beyond the ‘Third Wave’: Adapting the Repertoires of Criminalisation in New Contexts”.
