How to remember terrorist attacks


About the research

When a terrorist attack happens, citizens gather to commemorate and remember the victims. Often permanent memorials are created to commemorate the tragic event and its victims. But who gets to decide whether such a monument should be created and how it should look like? Ana Milosevic seeks to understand societal responses to traumatic events of our times.
