Memory and Reconciliation

Memory initiatives lie at the core of PIC’s programs.  As part of its participatory approach, PIC’s memory programs aim to reconstruct local history in ways that engage the community, including former Khmer Rouge cadres, victims, prisoners, witnesses, and the post-war generation.  As noted by Impunity Watch, “there is a need to ensure that the creation of memory and memorialisation engenders a process for constructive society-building rather than fixed, frozen histories or monuments that may be subjected to manipulation.”
