Training on memory work and reconciliation

Why is it important to carry out memory work?

The memory of a conflict, recent or not, is crucial for considering the possibility ofa reconciliation and enable living together in a society, whether in the country(ies) concerned but also in Belgium where populations sometimes opposed in a conflict have migrated and are brought into contact with each other.

Memory also plays an essential role in conflict prevention: talking about the past and offering recognition to victims sometimes helps prevent wounds from resurfacing too suddenly. Through examples of memory management on the colonial past of Belgium in Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo, the training shows how states choose to talk about the past and for what reasons.

Between theory, animation and debates, this one-day training will allow you to develop your own analysis in order to actively participate in this debate as a citizen.

Audience: upper secondary teachers, pastoral actors, voluntary sector and curious citizens.
