Ethnic Conflict and Conflict Management in Former Yugoslavia

Program Description

Program Overview
The breathtaking beauty and rich contemporary culture make it hard to believe that Croatia and Bosnia were central to one of the 20th century’s most brutal wars. This program invites students to explore modern ethnic conflict through an examination of the political and ethnic issues that led to the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia. Students will also delve into how the many ways in which the war’s aftermath continues to indelibly shape the region.

Location & Program Features 
Touring the main areas of the 1990s conflict, in Croatia students will visit Zagreb, the country’s capital which endured Serbian aggression, and Dubrovnik where Serbian attacks on the Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage site, garnered global attention. The program will also take students through Bosnia, with time spent in Mostar, a picturesque village that was a key battleground of the war, one wherein ethnic tension still defines local politics, and Sarajevo, where students will study the city’s brutal four-year siege by Serbian forces. Bosnia’s capital of Sarajevo additionally provides the opportunity for students to learn about Bosnian Muslim culture.
