From its onset in early 2014, the Pluralistic Memories Project has developed a critical approach to public truth-telling procedures in societies affected by protracted conflict and large-scale violence, and explored alternative roads toward the documentation and circulation of personal accounts of troubled pasts. The research partners from Sri Lanka, Burundi, Palestine and Switzerland have conceptualised an incremental approach to the sharing of sensitive memories in progressively widening safe social spaces. This approach breaks down the process from eliciting to publicising a personal testimony into several steps spanning months and years, and it recognises the importance of localised and interpersonal channels of communication. It aspires to provide spaces where people can narrate how violence affects daily life and how they develop capacities to become more resilient when facing the disruptive impact of violence. To implement this approach, a rich corpus of diversified testimonies has been constituted across the three sites and other core components of the research design - surveys and community actions - have been successfully pilot tested during phase 1 of the research project (2014-16). On this basis, it will be possible to apply during phase 2 (2017-19) a participatory action research design that articulates community actions with rolling surveys, to assess their outcomes, and ethnographic studies of their processes. The re-use of the previously collected testimonies will allow participants to rely on third-person narration to explore new perspectives and test the safety of social settings without exposing oneself prematurely. This way, specific contexts are created in which local actors can build and explore safe social spaces at different scales to recognise and discuss diverse memories. During phase 2, the geographic scope of research and dissemination activities will also broaden, by complementing the research design with activities that address the role of diaspora communities and transnational circulation. Drawing on these core research activities, seven ongoing thesis works will deepen the critical analysis of current theory and practice of transitional justice, which they examine from different disciplinary angles and societal experiences around four cross-cutting issues: the policies of war commemoration, intergroup normalisation, relocation and return, and development-based reconciliation.
