Abstract: »Since the Dayton Peace Agreement ended the violence in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in 1995, a war of a different kind has continued. The country is fragmented into two separate political entities, the economy is among the worst in Europe, and ethnic divides among the population are getting worse, not better. The political system as a whole is ineffective and corrupt. This research project uses the experience of women in BiH as a lens through which to understand how the experience of past violence continues to affect individual lives, gender relations, and politics long after violence abates.« (Source: Report)
