The Centre for Security Studies (CSS), in conjunction with NATO Headquarters Sarajevo and EUFOR, hosted a series of Roundtable discussions in Banja Luka, Mostar and Sarajevo on the subject of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Persons Indicted for War Crimes (PIFWC’s). The Roundtables were hosted in a debate style format with university students from Banja Luka, Mostar, and Sarajevo participating.
The main objective of the proposed initiative is to inform the public, especially younger generation from The federation BiH and Republic of Srpska, about the individual responsibilities for the committed war crimes and the necessity to take them before the Court.
The speakers included amongst others Dr. Raffi Gregorian, NATO Political Advisor, Nick Williams, EUFOR Political Advisor, Matias Hellman of the ICTY, and Meddžida Kreso, President of the Court of BiH. These events were recorded by the state television BHT1 and later broadcasted in form of a documentary as part of the program “Graffiti”.
