Memories for Justice: Dialogue with Museums and Archives from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, and Ireland
This seminar is part of the Deep South Museum and Archives Initiative on documentation, museums and archive work. Its objective is to introduce the concept of memories and justice while also facilitating dialogue among museum and archive professionals.

Each museum will give a presentation on 1) the history of the museum and why it was founded, the museum's vision and mission, how they started, their initial challenges and how they overcame them. 2) main activities and programs, particularly the mission on memories for justice and reconciliation 3) current challenges and strategies for overcoming them, and 4) what is the museum's current and future roles?
