The Society for the End of Necropolitics: Blood Memory
with Lala Meredith-Vula and Arnisa Zeqo


In the 1990s, a civil movement organized at grassroots level by students and villagers to try to reconcile the thousands of feuding families around Kosova. These blood feuds were based on an old law that was written down in the fifteenth century known as the Kanun of Lek Dukagjin. Once reconciliation was agreed to, the victims and murderers would meet in a public reconciliation gathering. The need for change was so strong that soon the gatherings became mass demonstrations of unity.
