TRAINING PROGRAM

CONTRIBUTIONS


The PRACMEM Training and Research programme aims to make theoretical and methodological contributions to the field of memorialization after atrocities through an interdisciplinary approach which recognizes two major needs:

  1. the societal need of the establishment of a network of young researchers and practitioners trained to guide and evaluate practices of memorialization in relation to social reconstruction, as well as transfer of knowledge;
  2. the scientific need for exploration and evaluation of practices of memorialization after atrocities.


SUPPORT RESEARCH SKILLS


The PRACMEM training programme supports researchers and practitioners to acquire not only research skills, but also skills which would enable them to work with various stakeholders and to develop into useful ‘guides’ in processes of memorialization and social reconstruction.


PRACMEM will build a community of highly trained researchers and practitioners with expertise in understanding the impact of practices of memorialization and with tools to encourage what are deemed best or promising practices.
