International Coalition of Sites of Conscience
A global network of historic sites, museums, and memory initiatives connecting past struggles to today's movements for human rights and social justice. The need to remember often competes with the equally strong pressure to forget. Even with the best of intentions - such as to promote reconciliation after deeply divisive events by "turning the page" - erasing the past can prevent new generations from learning critical lessons while forever compromising opportunities to build a peaceful future.

Landscapes of Truth Project (2017)
Project leader, Youk Chhang
Over the past four decades, Cambodians have lived through six regimes, including Democratic Kampuchea, the genocidal period of Khmer Rouge rule (April 17, 1975-January 9, 1979) in which perhaps 2 million people perished. During this time, Cambodians have seen a variety of truth claims made both by different governments and during international interventions, such as the Peoples Republic of Kampuchea memorialization efforts (1979), the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (1991-1994), and now the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, or Khmer Rouge Tribunal (2006-present). This project considers these truth claims in relationship to the everyday understandings and practices of Cambodians, including rural villagers, whose perspective has too often been relegated to the background. In doing so, this project speaks to broader discussion of how post-conflict societies find a path forward after genocide, mass violence, and related interventions.
