Bosnia & Herzegovina: Post-War Situation

An author of Foreign Policy Association's War Crimes blog writes that the war that occurred in Bosnia and Herzegovina 15 years ago still “feels recent” and that “Bosnia is not taking major steps to diminish tensions by integrating communities”: “Education and politics are both segregated, so children don’t necessarily make friends outside their ethnic group and no politician has to balance the aspirations of Muslims, Serbs and Croats or develop credibility with more than one group, which is why the Republika Srpska has as its president a man most Bosniaks believe is a war criminal and many Serbs believe the same about Bosniak leaders.”
