Twenty years on from the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in November 1995, the consequences of conflict – including the long-term effects of displacement – are still being felt in the Western Balkans. FMR 50 examines the case of people who were displaced from and within Bosnia and Herzegovina as a result of the 1992-95 war, and reflects on the lessons that may be drawn from the successes and failures of the Agreement. FMR 50 includes 20 articles on ‘Dayton +20’, plus five ‘general’ articles.
This issue of FMR will be available online in English in html, pdf and audio formats; in Arabic in html and pdf; in Bosnian and Serbian in pdf; and in French and Spanish in html. It will be available in print in English, Bosnian, Serbian and Arabic.
