'Legal frames of memory: the Albanian Experience'
This paper considers a specific legal frame of memory from the early years of the Albanian dictatorship. The frame is filled by a photograph of Musine Kokkalari from her 1946 trial. I analyse her image with a view to identifying key historical, legal and political narratives that underpin contemporary efforts made by Albanian authorities to address mass human rights violations committed during the Enver Hoxha dictatorship (1945-1981). The way in which a post-dictatorial regime addresses past injustices is normally addressed in the field of transitional justice, but the key to unlocking my image is not confined to one area of legal scholarship.
