Supporting the Democratic Transition in Bosnia - Kent Fogg ‘07
1:00 PM - Kimball Theatre Screening Room

Following the end of the 1992-1995 conflict, Bosnia and Herzegovina embarked on the long process of recovery and political stabilization under the terms of the Dayton Peace Accords. The international community has played a unique role in Bosnia’s democratic transition with unprecedented authority to intervene in local politics. This workshop will discuss the successes and failures of democracy initiatives in Bosnia and the current state of affairs.
