Remembrance - Where do we go next?

Simon Barrow


Abstract: This paper looks at media coverage and developments around Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day in 2015, noting some new trends and issues. It locates these observations in an account of how Ekklesia's work towards a 'New Remembrance' is developing, and how the issue of Remembrance is related to the shift from 'war as an instrument of policy' to a new logic around peacemaking, peace building and conflict transformation. It also looks at the politics and beliefs underling Re-imagining Remembrance', the revised report first published by Ekklesia in 2009, and the 2014 follow-up, 'How to remember war so as to invest in peace'.
