The European project UNREST (Unsettling Remembering and Social Cohesion in Transnational Europe, 2016-2019) examined how Europe deals and dealt with the traumatic memory of its war past. It distinguishes two modes of remembrance - an antagonistic and a cosmopolitan one - neither of which provides a satisfactory or unifying model. UNREST proposes a third way, the agonistic one, creating space to bring together conflicting and emotional interpretations in order to achieve a better mutual understanding. With this aim in mind, UNREST combines the study of theory with the testing of practice: a number of museums in Europe that have war history as their subject have examined how the agonistic approach can inspire remembrance practice. The In Flanders Fields Museum was brought on board as a practical example.
