The idea for this book drew from Mueller-Hirth's (2017) article on temporalities of victimhood and was developed thanks to the generous response by the contributors to the volume. The backbone of the collection is our belief that by exploring how time is experienced, constructed and used by people and institutions, some central problems in post-conflict societies can be revealed and analysed in a unique way. The volume aims, empirically, to develop a deeper understanding of the role time plays in overcoming violent pasts and, theoretically, to contribute time-sensitive perspectives to the fields of transitional justice and peacebuilding.
