Abstract: This supplementary issue looks at how informal, often unrecognised, memory practices are used to deal with the legacy of violent conflict as a way to heal trauma, demand justice, and build sustainable peace. By drawing on case studies from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, India, Lebanon, Northern Ireland, Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Syria, and Vietnam, the articles examine informal practices of memorialisation that challenge amnesia and hegemonic discourses of conflict by creating spaces for dialogue and exchange.

Notes: This issue emerges out of the project, Memories from the Margins, funded by the British Academy, focusing on the memory work produced in informal archives and oral histories from Lebanon’s Civil War (1975–90) and Syria’s ongoing conflict (2011– present) to create a documentary film, an online archive, and teaching material, as well as producing research articles from our findings.
