Area of expertise

Henrique's research deals with the memory of political violence and collective trauma in post-conflict/post-authoritarian societies from a decolonial, radical democratic perspective. He is currently interested in how accountability measures (e.g. trials and commissions of inquiry) and practices of memorialisation reproduce narrow understandings of violence, parsimonious ideas of justice and depoliticised accounts of resistance. His work has appeared in the journals Security Dialogue and Critical Studies on Terrorism, in the online magazine Open Democracy, and in Rowman & Littlefield publications
