The workshop/L'atelier:

The central theme of the present workshop is resistance and collaboration of religious groups’ members and leaders with political authorities (Communist Party structures, but also the police and secret police forces) in communist Europe after World War II. With regard to religious traditions, majority/minority religious groups, and sub-types of communist regimes, we are interested in mapping out patterns of resistance and collaboration between 1945 and 1990 in a select number of countries located in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, and in understanding how resistance and collaboration have been interwoven, since the fall of communism in 1989/1990, into the politics of memory and transitional justice, that is, the effort of state and non-state actors to address and redress the human rights violations perpetrated by past regimes.


Religion and Diversity Project team members and student team members, colleagues in Montréal, Canada, and abroad with an expertise in countries located in post-communist Europe. The workshop is open to undergraduate and graduate students of universities in Montréal, as well as non-academics interested in the workshop topic.
