1 - ROOTS: Peace at risk in Bosnia
Show Notes

Welcome to Episode One of Peace at Risk in Bosnia, a three-part podcast by the Aegis Trust exploring the present crisis which threatens a return to violence 26 years after the Dayton Peace Accords ended war and genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In this episode, we learn how Bosnia faces a heightened risk of return to armed conflict following an intent expressed by Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik to break the Dayton Peace Accords by re-establishing the Army of Republika Srpska. We also learn about the roots of the crisis in the conflict and genocide of the 1990s, and find out about some of its effects on the series contributors themselves.

Narrated by Aegis founder and CEO James Smith, with contributors Emir Suljagić (Director of the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial Center), Tatjana Milovanović (Program Director for the Post-Conflict Research Center in Sarajevo), Hikmet Karčić (Genocide Scholar and Senior Researcher at the Institute for Islamic Tradition of Bosniaks in Sarajevo), and Jasmin Mujanović (political scientist and analyst of southeast European and international affairs).
