Memory and conflict: the memory of the “old conflict” as a means of overcoming the new one

The reality of Soviet 70 year rule, based on propaganda, politico-academic approaches of those years, in essence, used to bypass or remain silent over the ethnic conflicts of the beginning of the XX. century. Problems, which could cast a shadow over “Nation’s Friendship” or ideologies of “Internationalism”, were alien to the Soviet memory building policy. Post-Soviet realities, on the contrary, marked the beginning of “reopening” of “banned” topics and the building of a new memory. Under the conditions of post-Soviet reality to the role of memory was given so much importance that in social sciences ethnic conflicts were often presented also as an actualisation or manifestation of historical memory. Under these conditions the issue of historical memory is being discussed within a conflict framework as a manifestation of a new identity, which also may imply relevant behavior. Armenian-Azerbaijani relations include numerous stratums of historical memory. The dynamic events of the last two decades brought to light various manifestations, symbols etc. of seemingly completely forgotten memory, which actually became a part of a new reality conditioned on the conflict situation that started in 1988. 

The Karabagh conflict, which started in 1988, was accompanied by massive socio-political activities, different manifestations of ethnic violence, and torrents of refugees. It is interesting to see how the issue of collective and historical memory was in another manner manifested within the context of A-A conflict relations.How was the conflict manifested at the local level and ineveryday life? Which were the “people’s” mechanisms employed for conflict resolution in the time of crisis? How was the collective memory on the “old conflicts” manifested in everyday life?
