For most of the 1990s, the states that broke away from the former Yugoslavia, one by one were battlegrounds for the worst violence in Europe since the Second World War. The conflicts left the region deeply divided and economically weak. Today, none of the states of the former Yugoslavia have comprehensively addressed past conflicts and human rights abuses. This December, we will take part in the 12th Transitional Justice Forum in Post-Yugoslav Countries, to discuss memorialization and questions about what we remember, what we forgot, and whether and how judicial facts determine the commemorative language in the region. The forum is organized by The Coalition For RECOM and this years’ edition will take place in Zagreb, Croatia.
