Alliance for Historical Dialogue & Accountability

The Alliance for Historical Dialogue and Accountability Program (AHDA) has expanded the work of the Institute for the Study of Human Rights in the growing field of scholarship and practice that seeks to examine and address the historical legacy of conflicts, and in particular the role and impact that the memory of past violence wields on contemporary politics, societies and cultures.

The depth of interest in the program reflects the increasing recognition on the part of stakeholders that addressing a violent past and conflicting narratives about the past are integral tools in the work of reconciliation and democracy promotion.
