Description

July 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica Massacre, when more than 8000 Bosniaks, mainly men and boys, from the town of Srebrenica in Eastern Bosnia and around, were killed by units of the Army of Republika Srpska (VRS) under the command of General Ratko Mladić. The Secretary-General of the United Nations described the mass murder as the worst crime on European soil since the Second World War. To mark this anniversary, the University of Edinburgh, in an event organised by the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and the Global Justice Academy, has brought together a distinguished panel of academics and practitioners to consider some of the lessons to be learned from these events during the Bosnian wars.
