Studying the Constitution as a ‘lieu de mémoire’
Contemporary Constitutions may be tools for bringing the past into the present. Memories and identity are also vital to the reconciliation and democratisation processes in culturally heterogeneous societies. In this context, the EU-funded We-R project will focus on the relationship between collective memory and national identity to study the Constitution as a ‘lieu de mémoire’. This concept refers to certain places, objects or events that can have special significance as related to how they are remembered. The project will integrate constitutional law memory and nationalism studies and specifically investigate the example of the Western Balkans.
