On 31 May 2012, the Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile and the Faculty of Political Science within the University of Bucharest organised the second edition of the French-Romanian Scientific Workshop entitled The Memory of Dictatorial Regimes in Eastern Europe.

The Workshop focused on the evolution of collective representations on communism and fascism. Can one speak about a collective memory of these regimes or rather of plural, fragmented and often competing memories? How are they created? Which are the factors that influenced their evolution in time?
