On October 8, PCRC facilitated a meeting with Bosnian civil society organizations (CSO) and Mr. Adama Dieng, Under-Secretary General and UN Special Adviser for Genocide Prevention. During the meeting, the CSO representatives were able to present their work and discuss obstacles, strategies, and their visions for the future. We are grateful to Mr. Dieng for providing his insights into issues of reconciliation, peacebuilding and hate speech in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the role CSOs play in these processes. Next to Mr. Dieng, the meeting was also attended by Kathleen Kavalec, Head of the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina and local UN officials.
This meeting is a result of PCRC’s long-term, successful cooperation with the UN Office on Genocide Prevention and Responsibility to Protect. More about this partnership can be found here.
