On 29 July 2021, the Mechanism’s Information Programme for Affected Communities (MIP) held a workshop on the use of ICTY and Mechanism archives for more than 24 history teachers from Croatia.

The event was organised in cooperation with the Sense Transitional Justice Centre in Pula, the European Association of History Teachers (EUROCLIO) and the Croatian Association of History Teachers. This is the third workshop in a series of MIP workshops and trainings to be held for history educators in Croatia.

The workshop, led by MIP coordinator Ms. Rada Pejić-Sremac and youth outreach coordinator Ms. Anisa Sućeska, focused on how history teachers can best include judicially established facts when creating educational material related to the 1990s conflicts in the former Yugoslavia.

Trainings on the use of the ICTY and Mechanism archives for history educators form part of the wider MIP, which is generously supported by the European Union. 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.
