MIP presents multimedia productions to visitors of the Sense Transitional Justice Centre in Pula, Croatia
On 30 July 2021, Rada Pejić-Sremac, coordinator of the Mechanism Information Programme for Affected Communities (MIP), presented the MIP’s multimedia productions to visitors of the Sense Transitional Justice Centre in Pula, Croatia.
The event was opened by the director of the Sense Transitional Justice Centre, Mirko Klarin, and guests were also greeted by the Head of Department for Culture of the Istria County, Vladimir Torbica.
During her remarks, Ms. Pejić-Sremac highlighted that the MIP aims to contribute to the processes of transitional justice and strengthening the rule of law in the Western Balkans region. She explained that the MIP uses the archives and legacies of the ICTY and Mechanism, in particular the adjudicated cases of these institutions, to present fact-based accounts of crimes committed during the 1990s conflicts in the former Yugoslavia.
Ms. Pejić-Sremac then introduced the latest MIP production - an online exhibition entitled Srebrenica: Timeline of a Genocide, which has reached a large audience via the Mechanism’s website and social media pages. Visitors were also shown a selection of short videos produced for the MIP’s various social media campaigns.
The MIP is generously supported by the European Union, and MIP activities implemented in Croatia are funded by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. The aim of the MIP is to improve the knowledge and understanding of citizens and communities in the countries of the former Yugoslavia about the crimes committed during the conflicts of the 1990s, based on ICTY and Mechanism cases.
