Goals and Working Areas


Identify and analyze the different memorial processes occurring in Europe and other continents from the point of view of experts, professionals and civil society. That is, universities, institutions and associations form the basis of our network partners.

Promote discussion for a representative European -or international- memorial policy. Create a scientific committee for this purpose.

Network with all project partners and other organizations that play a temporary role.

Design and implement a joint working program for the next six years and secure funding to develop joint projects.

Contribute to the analysis and management of memory policies and to the socialization of commemorative initiatives.

Foster multidisciplinary research and work on activities focused on the construction of public memory.

Promote a real connection among institutions, practitioners and researchers from Europe and other continents, with special attention to Latin America.

The aim of the EUROM is to address the complexity of memory in the 21st century without complexes or political pressure.

Memory & Power

Memorial public policies and the democratic powers in Europe: uniqueness or diversity? How do the executive, legislative and judicial powers confront the recent past?

Memorial Rituals and Commemorations, the Use of Public Memory

The national public memories (in other words, “common European memory”) are dressed in finery to celebrate the historical events. The public expressions of homage and remembrance often become mere ritual.

Memory and Counterpower

Memory is conflict and transgression; the civil society organizations can develop the right to accede memory as a social counter power. Public convictions, the relatives of victims, memorial associations, artists, and other groups can act as a counter power, reaching the objectives that policies do not.

Memory and Public Space

An analysis of cultural heritage and collective memory: this heritage is configured by material and immaterial remains. The EUROM will promote a reflection on the socialization and redefinition of this heritage.

Mediation and Transmission, the Memory Targets

In Europe and elsewhere, there is currently a debate on mediation and different types of visitors of sites of memory, exhibitions and original locations. The relationship between the public, tourists and students is important to interpreting the past as a collective and cultural heritage of our societies.
