of the past and their uncritical internalization that leads to adherence to master narratives of conflict construct a threatened self and generate dis-trust towards the outgroup. A threatened self and intergroup distrust are in our opinion obstacles to conflict transformation (Galtung 2000) and to a peaceful settlement of intergroup conflicts.
