   schema:description "In consolidating accounts by both lawyers and non-lawyers, this volume seeks to fill the "comparative" gap in the literature, revisiting memory laws as a phenomenon of global law and transitional justice. The book offers accounts from various national jurisdictions and from transnational law. The authors ask how law certifies historical narratives, entails claims about historical truth, prescribes commemorative practices, and excludes ineligible accounts."@en ;
