Balkan Insight Article featuring our 2014 study Seminar in Israel

BalkanInsCan Serbs Learn From Israelis and Palestinians?

Despite very different conflicts, Serbian, Israeli and Palestinian rights activists say they face common problems: state denial of past atrocities and the task of helping wartime refugees return home.

You need to get out from your own context, learn about other conflicts so you can look at your situation from a different perspective,” explained professor Orli Fridman, the Israeli director of the Belgrade-based Centre for Comparative Conflict Studies, during her latest study seminar to Tel Aviv last month.

Fridman has been organising such study seminars over the past years, bringing human rights activists from Israel and the Palestinian territories to Serbia to explore what people who have been through two very different conflicts can share and learn from each other.

Comparative Memory Activism in Israel and Serbia: Practices and Challenges

In January 2014 the Center for Comparative Conflict Studies (CFCCS) organized a study seminar to Israel and Palestine for practitioners, scholars and activists from Serbia engaged in memory work and dealing with the past projects.

The seminar explored concepts of collective memory and memory work in societies in and after conflict. It offered a comparative analysis of memory activism and mnemonic battles in both Serbia and Israel by focusing on memory work in Israel as related to themes such as: hegemonic memories/counter memories, the memories of 1948, the memories of 1967, the memory of the Jewish holocaust in Israel and others.

Course designed for the Forum ZFD Balkans Staff
November 18-20, 2013

CFCCS was invited to design and deliver a training seminar for the Forum ZFD Balkans Staff who will be working on the Dealing with the Past projects. The course aimed to enhance the theoretical and practical understanding of the participants, as related to their work focus in Dealing with the Past and Memory Work. It also aimed to strengthen and deepen the understanding of the participants as related to:
- bridging theory and conflict;
- framing Dealing with the Past in the context of Conflict Analysis, Conflict Transformation and Memory Studies frameworks.
The seminar training was taught by Dr. Orli Fridman and was attended by 17 staff members from the Forum ZFD's offices in Belgrade, Prishtina, Sarajevo and Skopje.

 

About the Center

The Center for Comparative Conflict Studies (CFCCS) is a research and educational center. Our aim is to offer a space in which scholars, students, educators, practitioners and activists can engage in the study of the dynamics of conflicts in a comparative framework. While most scholars tend to exceptionalize the conflicts they study, our aim is to work within a comparative framework that highlights broader dynamics of societies in conflict. Our interest and projects are focused on the conflicts in the successor states of the former Yugoslavia and on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as well as other conflicts worldwide.

 

CFCCS is a research and educational center at the Faculty of Media and Communications (FMK), Belgrade Singidunum University.

U potrazi za istorijskim aktivizmom u Izraelu \ Nebojša Milikić U potrazi za istorijskim aktivizmom u Izraelu \ Nebojša Milikić Od 11-18. januara ove godine, imao sam priliku da učestvujem u seminaru “Memory Activism in Israel”, organizovanom od strane Centra za komparativne studije konflikta iz Beograda. Seminar je bio dobro pripremljen i vrlo intenzivan u programskom smislu. Njegov fokus je bio upoznavanje sa istorijskim činjenicama o konfliktima u Palestini nakon osnivanja države Izrael, kao i praktični i teorijski uvid u neke aktuelne aktivističke prakse i politike jav...

The voice of those who are not there \ Sandra Orlović The voice of those who are not there \ Sandra Orlović The first Israeli I met upon landing in Tel Aviv was Eitan Bronstein. Eitan is the founder and former director of  Zochrot, and was our local coordinator for the study seminar.  Zochrot acts to challenge the Israeli Jewish public's preconceptions and promotes awareness, political and cultural change within it, among other things, to create the conditions for the return of Palestinian refugees and a shared life in this country. I had heard a ...

The Four Faces of Tel Aviv \ Marija Ristić The Four Faces of Tel Aviv \ Marija Ristić After a long thinking about this post and the task what inspired me the most during our week long trip to Israel, I actually come up with the idea to apply some of the work of one of my colleagues related to Yugoslav wars to Israel. Nenad Porobić, who was also a part of our group that was visiting Israel, is also part of Belgrade-based  group of artists and activists  called Working Group Four Faces of Omarska. More detail
Between Tel-Aviv and Belgrade: Comparative memory work \ Orli Fridman Between Tel-Aviv and Belgrade: Comparative memory work \ Orli Fridman So little is known about the post- Yugoslav wars of the 1990s among Israelis and Palestinians, unlike the overwhelming and on going news and coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian that consume the international media. At Zochrot, after a long day, we invited interested audience to learn about Memory work in Serbia. The position of those engaged in memory work in their societies in Serbia, as I understand it, is very similar to this of activists in Israel pro... More detail
Down with the wall! \ Nenad Porobić Down with the wall! \ Nenad Porobić I will never forget the day when we visited both Rachel’s Tomb and Aida Refugee Camp near Bethlehem in the West Bank. In order to deepen our understanding of the Palestinian plight in 1948 (Nakba, i.e. catastrophe – mass ethnic cleansing of Palestinians by Jews from what became the state of Israel) and its unaddressed consequences, the organizers of the Study seminar took us to these two locations which are separated by a segregation wall Israel has be...
