    Transnational dimensions of dealing with the past in ‘Third Wave’ democracies

    Southern Europe, Central Eastern Europe, and the Former Soviet Union in Global Perspective

    This conference aims to fill the gap by looking at how post-dictatorial justice and memory experiences in Southern Europe, Central Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union after the “third wave of democratization” have reciprocally affected each other. It also seeks to unpack how memorialization practices in these regions were shaped by and influenced in turn criminalization discourses in other geographical contexts (Latin America, Asia, Africa). The conference focuses on transnational activism, transfers of knowledge, and expertise at bilateral, regional or international levels, the impact of legal and mnemonic narratives outside their countries of origin, and the role of international organizations and NGO's in dealing with mass violence. The conference aims thus to trace the mutlidirectional circulation of ideas, norms and models of reckoning with authoritarian regimes both within these regions, and between them and other areas of the world.

    The multiplication of discrimination criteria

    Issues, effects and perspectives

    En France, l'essor du droit de la non-discrimination s'est accompagné d'une multiplication des critères de discrimination. Ainsi, alors que le droit dérivé de l'Union européenne comprend sept critères visés par les directives relatives à la lutte contre les discriminations, le droit interne, qui couvre les mêmes champs, en comprend désormais plus de vingt-cinq. Ce phénomène soulève de nombreuses questions, jusqu'à lors peu abordées, qui nécessitent aussi bien un regard rétrospectif sur les dynamiques à l'œuvre dans la multiplication des critères qu'un examen de leur opérationnalité tant en droit que dans le champ social. Se pose par ailleurs la question des combinaisons multiples entre ces critères, notamment à travers la notion d'intersectionnalité. Ce sont ces enjeux que ce colloque pluridisciplinaire (droit, sociologie, science politique, etc.) et comparatiste (Europe, États-Unis) abordera.
