MIP launches online exhibition “War in Bosnia 1992-1995”

The Mechanism Information Programme for Affected Communities (MIP) today launched a new online exhibition entitled “War in Bosnia 1992-1995” to mark the 30th anniversary of the beginning of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH).

The exhibition presents a temporal and geographic overview of crimes that were committed during the war in BiH and adjudicated before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and its successor, the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (Mechanism).

The 15 entries presented in this exhibition cover crimes committed in different locations across BiH, including Foča, Mostar, Sarajevo, Srebrenica and Prijedor. Each entry is illustrated by a photo or video exhibit that was admitted into evidence during ICTY or Mechanism trials.

The exhibition can be viewed here.

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. The MIP is generously supported by the European Union.
