Practice to make a difference.

Working with memory in the shadow of genocide

In 1994, the genocide in Rwanda claimed over one million human lives. Today, Ibuka, the national survivors' association of Rwanda, has developed ways to respond.

The Ibuka trauma counsellors have found ways to heal memories in the shadow of genocide.

Together - and through their formal partnership with the Dulwich Centre Foundation International, based in Australia - they have developed local, innovative, culturally-appropriate methodologies, drawing on principles and practice of narrative therapy and community work.

This publication documents the unique forms of therapeutic and collective practice that Ibuka workers are developing. It contains the stories of this work and its outcomes; the principles they are employing; examples of the methodologies; and ideas for how workers and organisations in other contexts can develop their own effective practices.

Also included in this publication are innovations in narrative practice relating to multiple storylines of memory; personal memory/social memory; sharing the 'problem of memory', and ensuring the survival of ideals.

Working with memory in the shadow of genocide is a document of both thoughtful and effective practice, as well as hope and inspiration.
