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.

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.
