The Dayton Accords ended the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1995. The 10th
anniversary gives reason to investigate the post-war period, today’s
realities and future perspectives. Bosnian authors and international
experts express their views on recent developments. Insiders and
outsiders, working in the conflict and on its transformation, have been
invited to tackle the questions: Which conflict lines mark the present
society? Did peacebuilding activities address the underlying causes? What
are obstacles for conflict transformation? What are the potentials and
limits of international support? What does „civil society“ mean in Bosnia
and how is it related to statebuilding and democratisation? How can people
constructively deal with the past in order to design the future in the
region of former Yugoslavia?
The book gives an overview on an important research focus of the Berghof
Research Center, highlighting the work of its most important cooperation
