This webinar series aims to support the work of both of these mechanisms by debating recent and future thematic priorities and discussing relevant country case studies.

Wie stark und mit welcher Zielsetzung bezieht die Erinnerungsarbeit andere Länder, Europa und die EU mit ein? Versteht sie sich in einer inklusiven oder exklusiven, versöhnenden oder ausschließenden Rolle?
