La diffusion internationale de la catégorie de "Juste parmi les Nations". (Re)penser l'articulation entre diffusion des droits de l'homme et globalisation de la mémoire

Abstract : The transnationalization of the « Righteous among the Nations ». New perspectives on the relationship between Human Rights diffusion and globalization of memory Since the early 2000s, “memory” has become a tool of development of Human rights policies, in post-conflict societies as in old democracies, as much as transnational scale as within national frameworks. This evolution has been seen so far as a sign of the birth of a global memory, this “cosmopolitan memory” – brought first and foremost by the memory of the Holocaust – and expected to be a vector of human rights. The globalization of the memory of the “Righteous Among the Nations” as humanitarian figures gives the opportunity to question empirically this apparent link between memory and human rights. In doing so, this article aims to identify what else than the “global” and the “humanitarian” can be at stake in these so-called “memory” policies. In doing so, this article crosses neo-institutionalist approach and discursive approach to public policy in order to revisit the linkage between strategic, cognitive and institutional dimensions at the heart of the memory processes.
