Women and Peace-Building in Bosnia and Herzegovina

This project examines the previously under-recognized efforts and achievements of women peace-builders in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Drawing upon life story interviews with women of multiple ethnic and religious backgrounds, it documents and analyzes their contributions to reconciliation in a postwar, plural democratic society.

Zilka Siljak remains to complete her work on Women and Peace-building in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
