Roots of the Bosnian Genocide

Speaker: Hikmet Karčić (Institute for Research of Crimes against Humanity and International Law, University of Sarajevo)

Between 1992-1995, Bosnian Serb forces humiliated, sexually abused, tortured, and killed Bosnian Muslims and Croats in a widespread, systematic way as part of the armed conflicts occurring across the former Yugoslavia. Bosnian Serb-built concentration camps provided an ideal setting for its forces to carry out these mass atrocities—the goal was to produce so much physical and psychological trauma as to deter non-Serbs from ever returning to the area. Karčić explains how and why the camps functioned as an effective tool for the internationally condemned ethnoreligious genocidal campaign against non-Serb populations.
