In the latest issue of “Nationalities Affairs” you can find my latest article on Post-war Bosniak Memory Politics of the Srebrenica Mass Killings.

Using the Bosniak example, the article shows that contemporary B&H nationalist elites have never lost their monopoly on producing legitimate interpretations of the wartime past primarily because they have learned to turn to their own advantage the shortcomings, limitations and contradictions of the state-building policy pursued by the International Community in Bosnia. The article may also lead to the conclusion that in Bosnia and Herzegovina nationalists of all three options – Bosniak, Serb and Croat – are equally dangerous, so that any attempt to build a division into “good” and “bad” nationalists must be politically motivated.

Enjoy your reading!
