Remembering Srebrenica

(part of the Milders Lecture Series and annual Lemkin Reunion)

The killing of more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica in July 1995 was the worst act of genocide in Europe since World War II. It prompted a major intervention to end the war in Bosnia. But its repercussions are still felt two decades later and it remains a deep source of division. Russia's recent veto of a UN Security Council resolution that described the massacre as a genocide marked a deep rift in the way the event is seen as did the anger directed at the Serbian prime minister when he attended a memorial event. The Lemkin Reunion remembers the killings at Srebrenica and will look at how this event has had an impact on Europe since then.

Introduction: John Shattuck, CEU President and Rector

Welcome: Gajus ScheltemaAmbassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Hungary

Speakers

Bert Bakker, former MP 1994-2006, president of the parliamentary committee of inquiry on Srebrenica, 2002/2003

Muhamed Durakovic, Srebrenica survivor and head of mission of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) in Libya

Kati Marton, author and journalist, CEU Board member

Moderated by Robert Templer, Director of the Center for Conflict, Negotiation and Recovery, Professor of Practice, School of Public Policy

The Lemkin Reunion is an annual event in honor of Raphael Lemkin, the Polish-born lawyer who coined the term genocide and was key in getting the Genocide Convention passed by the United Nations. Each year it gathers a group of people to remember past acts of genocide or atrocity crimes and to discuss the implications for policy today.
