Doctoral student Salvador Herencia, Director of the Human Rights Clinic at the University’s Human Rights Research and Education Centre, has contributed to a new publication from Cambridge University Press entitled Law and Memory: Towards Legal Governance of History.
The book is a comprehensive case study of Memory Laws in Europe, with cases from the U.S., Canada, Israel and other places. Mr. Herencia has contributed a chapter entitled “Defense of democracy and the preservation of collective memory through criminal legislation: the challenges of reconciliation in Peru”. It is the only section on Latin America in the book.
This publication is the fruit of almost two years of proposals, drafts, peer-review and conference presentations for Mr. Herencia. Congratulations to Mr. Herencia on this exceptional achievement!
