Law and memory
Law and Memory is the project of Polish Academy of Sciences Scientific Centre in Vienna. Both law and memory are important components of understanding the legal solutions to the problem of politics of memory in the broader context of world politics. As part of the project, the PAS in Vienna aims to disseminate research on important legal and political issues from the point of view of the various parties involved in the discussion of memory policy.
As part of the project, we organize conferences, lectures and conduct research on the politics of memory, historical truth and judicial practice regarding the memory of crimes committed during World War II.
