This unit examines the emergent histories of post-genocide and post-conflict societies. It explores the negotiation of perpetrator, victim and bystander identities after genocide through histories of return and diaspora; and considers the local initiatives that rebuild post-conflict societies, including strategies of genocide prevention. It recognizes the different experiences of women, children and men in conflict and their different paths to reconciliation. Bosnia, Rwanda, Cambodia, South Africa, post-Holocaust German-Jewish relations, Germany's reunification, and Australia will be discussed, along with processes such as reparations, international criminal tribunals and truth commissions.
