2019 marked the eight-year of the fellowship program.

The Alliance for Historical Dialogue and Accountability (AHDA) brings together scholars, students, civil society organizations, journalists, educators, artists, policy makers, and others who work on historical dialogue issues in conflict, post-conflict and post-dictatorial societies. These individuals address the political ramifications of the historical legacy of conflicts, as well as the role and impact of the memory of past violence on contemporary politics, society and culture.

The variety of activities and work that the AHDA program supports and develops reflects the fact that historical dialogue takes place in a variety of fields ranging from journalism and education to history and new media. These disciplines all contribute to the goals of historical dialogue, namely, enhancing public discussion about the past; understanding the uses and misuses of history; and creating a framework in which communities can reflect, share and debate their past in the quest for reconciliation and a more democratic future.

The Center for Human Rights Documentation and Research and the AHDA program are collaborating on a project to enhance the visibility and accessibility of human rights archives. AHDA affiliates will have the ability to both digitally preserve documentation of their work in the archives, as well as have the opportunity to learn from materials stored by fellow affiliates.
