Remembering Srebrenica: 10th May
The University of Brighton Business School, in collaboration with Remembering Srebrenica, are hosting a panel discussion to commemorate the genocide that occurred during the Bosnian/Serbian war.
When: Wednesday 10th May – 14:00
Where: Mithras, M218
“On 6th April 1993, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 819, declaring that Srebrenica and a 30 square mile area around the town was a United Nations Safe Area. The UN promised the people of Srebrenica safety and security. Their promises fell through as genocide began.”
The subsequent massacre resulted in over (known) 8,000 deaths, most of whom were boys and men who were forcibly separated. There were also tens of thousands of cases of rape and abuse on women, children, and the elderly. Over ten years after the genocide, mass graves were still being discovered.
Speakers at the event will include:
Amra Mujkanovic, Remembering Srebrenica
Dr Christalla Yakinthou, The University of Birmingham
Melina Sadikovic, The University of Brighton
Dr Susan Power, Griffith College, Cork and Dublin
