Eurathlon programme. As part of a review into the impact of the ruling on sports programmes in the EU, the Commission asked Deutsche Sportbund (the German Sport Federation) to carry out a study into the way in which sport can be integrated into Community aid programmes. The result once again demonstrated the huge range of activities within which sport plays or could play a part. Both the Coopers and Lybrand and Deutsche Sportbund reports demonstrate how fragmented EU involvement in sport is. However, some effort has been made on the part of the EU to co-ordinate sporting

The debate is too complex to be dealt with in few lines.52 Practices that significantly impair a woman’s or a girl’s bodily integrity have been condemned not only by European countries, but also by countries where FGM/C, for example, is tolerated, and even encouraged, by local c­ ommunities.53 One should bear in mind that the victims are usually girls who are too young to express consent to undergo the practice. Even though the practice is transmitted from mother to daughter and is accepted within a community, even if it is perpetrated and supported by women

. In Europe, the legal response to the terrible crimes committed by the cartels and monopolies of corporatist Germany and her allies in the Second World War was the so-called ordoliberalism of post-war competition policy, in particular as constituted in Articles 101–106 of the 1957 Treaty establishing the European Economic Community (Treaty of Rome) (now the European Union or EU).

Sacralisation and militarisation in the remembrance of the ‘cursed soldiers’
Marije Hristova and Monika Żychlińska

Between 2012 and 2017, at the Ł-section of Warsaw’s Powązki Military Cemetery, or ‘Łączka’, the Polish Institute of National Remembrance exhumed a mass grave containing the remains of post-war anti-communist resistance fighters. Being referred to as the ‘cursed soldiers’, these fighters have become key figures in post-2015 Polish memory politics. In this article we focus on the role of the volunteers at these exhumations in the production of the ‘cursed soldiers’ memory. Following the idea of community archaeology as a civil society-building practice, the observed processes of sacralisation and militarisation show how the exhumations create a community of memory that promotes the core values of the currently governing national-conservative PiS party. We found that tropes related to forensic research and typically identified with cosmopolitan memory paradigms are used within a generally nationalist and antagonistic memory framework.

Overriding politics and injustices

In October 2011, twenty skulls of the Herero and Nama people were repatriated from Germany to Namibia. So far, fifty-five skulls and two human skeletons have been repatriated to Namibia and preparations for the return of more skulls from Germany were at an advanced stage at the time of writing this article. Nonetheless, the skulls and skeletons that were returned from Germany in the past have been disappointingly laden with complexities and politics, to such an extent that they have not yet been handed over to their respective communities for mourning and burials. In this context, this article seeks to investigate the practice of ‘anonymising’ the presence of human remains in society by exploring the art and politics of the Namibian state’s memory production and sanctioning in enforcing restrictions on the affected communities not to perform, as they wish, their cultural and ritual practices for the remains of their ancestors.

This article describes the brutalisation of the bodies of Tutsi and Jewish victims in 1994 and during the Second World War, respectively, and contrasts the procedures adopted by killers to understand what these deadly practices say about the imaginaries at work in Rwanda and Poland. Dealing with the infernalisation of the body, which eventually becomes a form of physical control, this comparative work examines the development of groups and communities of killers in their particular social and historical context. Different sources are used, such as academic works, reports from victims organisations and non-governmental organisations, books, testimonies and film documentaries.
