As calls for a break from past repressions ring out from Egypt to Libya, how can the lessons of history be tapped to envision new futures? What steps can historic Sites of Conscience in the Middle East and North Africa take to engage in democracy building? At this historic moment, will new Sites of Conscience such as Egypt's Tahrir Square, where so many protests took place, emerge?
At its first Middle East and North Africa Sites of Conscience workshop this May, the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience will debate and address these very questions.
The workshop, co-hosted in Morocco by the Coalition and the International Center for Transitional Justice, brings together Moroccan stakeholders and representatives from prominent memory initiatives in Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco and other countries to share their experiences, explore how they might work together, and develop recommendations for how the Coalition can support work in the region.
