Salvador Herencia Contributes to New Book, “Law and Memory”

Posted on Thursday, November 16, 2017

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!
