July 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide. The seminar is organized by PRIO and the Bosnia Hercegovina Association in Norway.
Key speaker: Dr. Lara Nettelfield, Royal Holloway University of London.
Dr. Nettelfield is a renowned Bosnia expert and a researcher. She recently published a co-authored manuscript titled Srebrenica in the Aftermath of Genocide (Cambridge University Press, 2014). This book reveals how interactions between local, national and international interventions - from refugee return and resettlement to commemorations, war crimes trials, immigration proceedings and election reform - have led to subtle, positive effects of social repair, despite persistent attempts at denial. Using an interdisciplinary approach, diverse research methods, and more than a decade of fieldwork in five countries, the authors trace the genocide's reverberations in Bosnia and abroad.
