A Question of Decency: a comparative study of reconstructing communities divided by war in Norway and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Tildelt: kr 1,2 mill.

I propose to examine how a community reconstitutes itself after a violent rupture of its social organization and political structure that polarized the population into hostile camps. The study will be a contribution to the literature and debate on the dif ferent approaches to reconciliation in post-conflict societies, and engage with the emerging anthropological literature and regime change (see Borneman, 2003 and Bringa 2003). I will identify consequences of violent state-regime changes for local communit ies, and look at ways in which people deal with real personal divisions long after stat- and/or international run processes of legal retribution and/or truth commissions have left the scene.
