Peace Institute Book Launch Event
24 February 2011, Cankarjev Dom, Ljubljana
The Peace Institute book “The Scars of the Erasure. A Contribution to the Critical Understanding of the Erasure from the Register of Permanent Residence of the Republic of Slovenia” was first published in 2010 in Slovenian language. A year later an English translation of this work which is a joint result of seven authors is presented. In the book the erasure is portrayed within various contexts – economic and political transition, establishing of the common European migration policy, human rights, health issues, nationalism, language rights and emancipation movements. By putting the erasure in these contexts the book aims to achieve a broader understanding of this measure of unlawful deprivation of legal status of the people. The book is dedicated to Aleksandar Todorović, a man at the forefront of the fight for the erased people’s rights.
