Remembering and Coexisting in the Eastern Mediterranean

Welcome to Rem-Em, the digital platform for scholars and practitioners interested in

Historical Trauma, Human Rights and Pluralism in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Rem-Em is the digital platform of the project Rememberings: Human Rights, Historical Trauma and the Future of Pluralism in Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean, hosted by the Swedish Institute in Istanbul and funded by the Swedish Institute. Our aim is to foster increased exchange and collaboration between academia and civil society in the fields of Human Rights and Historical Trauma in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Rememberings has started its activities in the summer of 2020. During the couse of two years, we will organize workshops, summer schools and podcasts for emerging scholars and practitioners in Istanbul and elsewhere.
