My project is a genealogical study of truth-seeking in international post-violence politics. Searching for the truth about past violence as a means to inhibit future violence is not a timeless and self-evident undertaking, but consists of historically varying practices and assumptions and is political and ethical in character. In exposing this, the project is a critical inquiry into the ways of knowing inscribed in and the ideas underlying post-violence politics today, and an exploration of alternatives.
