Beyond the nation? In search of global connections between traumatic memories
Edited by Dovilė Budrytė ( and Erica Resende (

This special issue draws on the emerging literature on memory and trauma in international relations to transcend the limits imposed by national frameworks and traditional ways of thinking about ethnic relations and identity politics. Engaging feminist, constructivist, legal and other theories, this collection of articles develops connective approaches to the study of traumatic memories that help to understand practices of non-state actors in the global arena.
