A Transnational Epilogue
This chapter sums up the aims and findings of the book. As some authors have underlined, the struggle for the memory is a fight for the future, with long-lasting consequences for the political, cultural and economic fields. With its special focus on the evolution of the memory of transitions, the legacy of European values, and the impact of visions of the past on new grassroots movements and political actors, this volume seeks to describe the way these issues have been perceived over time. The present contribution further promotes a transnational comparison, providing some clues about the interrelatedness between the in-depth descriptions of distinct national case studies. Whereas the underlying similarities have been dealt with in the introduction, here the focus is more on the emerging differences between Spain, Greece and Portugal.
