Deterrence is an objective, even as the Trump Administration responds to challenges with even more audacious assertions of
This is not just about Bosnia but rather the reactionary appeal of nationalism, populism and manifestations of walls, physical and psychological.
I want to express my anger at the shameful images that have circulated widely on the Web (though for once not widely enough) of a manhandled journalist, her glasses ripped off, dragged away by police, veritably kidnapped, and stashed in a jail that in principle is reserved for the dregs of humanity.
The "Genocide Convention," to which the U.S. is party, carries with it the affirmative obligation to confront the crime while still ongoing and not just to punish the perpetrators after the fact.
SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina -- The idea of atoning for crimes that Karadzic was found guilty of sends shivers down my spine and makes me feel as alienated as I had felt some 20 years ago -- as a child born of mixed marriage growing up in wartime Sarajevo.
Justice does not exist. This thought has been bugging me today. It has been swimming in my head ever since I read the news
Radovan Karadzic was found guilty of 10 out of 11 war crimes charges and sentenced to 40 years in jail.
Two decades after the Dayton Accords, the question is not about what happened during the three weeks of negotiations, but why is Bosnia & Herzegovina ("BiH") still defined by and stuck in that period and the conflict that it ended.
The septicemia of nationalism must be cured by embracing clear-headedness, and the process of reconciliation. If not, Serbian victims will be killed once again without knives and bullets, but with political and judicial silence instead.
All individual leaders -- and, for that matter, ideologies -- are expendable. No global or regional power or current leader should be allowed to claim as their own a shared future that first belongs to all Syria's citizens. That would be a sell-out!
Nikolić's and Jeremić's promotion of historical revisionism that denies genocide and accentuates ethnic chauvinism negates what many in Washington and Brussels may wishfully want to see as a more politically progressive Serbia.
On the twentieth anniversary of the start of the Bosnian war we should feel anger and shame because 'the international order' is still ignoring those warning signs when they occur. We should also acknowledge the human consequences of the West's failure in Bosnia.
Ratko Mladic's life on the run as one of the world's most wanted men was full of twists and turns -- even though he never
I suppose I should be jumping for joy now that Mladic is in custody, but it's not that simple. His crimes are not a footnote in the history books for me. They are etched in the fabric of my soul and those of many of my friends.
One down (sort of). Two to go. It is, of course, big news that Slobodan Milosevic, the man who started and lost four wars
The politically motivated allegations against Dr. Ganic represent a broader campaign by ultra-nationalist groups within Serbia to excuse, explain and outright deny Bosnian genocide. It was for this reason I posted his $300,000 bail.
Despite all of this, despite my heritage, I didn't know - not truly - the difference between war and genocide, between aggression
As Radovan Karadzic sits between two UN prison guards in an international tribunal, one must wonder, is the end of impunity finally coming to a close?
