This volume explores the politics of memory involved in 'coming to terms with the past' of mass dictatorship on a global scale. Considering how a growing sense of global connectivity and global human rights politics changed the memory landscape, the essays explore entangled pasts of dictatorships, tensions between de-territorializing and re-territorializing memories, competitive ways of constructing the memories of the intersubjective past in a global perspective.
