Bosnia and the Destruction of Cultural Heritage
Dr Helen Walasek
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., Apr 28, 2015 - Social Science - 280 pages
The massive intentional destruction of cultural property during the 1992-1995 Bosnian War was a seminal marker in cultural heritage. This important volume offers the first comprehensive overview and critical analysis of the wartime destruction and post-conflict reconstruction of Bosnia-Herzegovina’s cultural heritage and its far-reaching impact. Scrutinizing the responses of the international community (including UNESCO), and examining the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and implementation of Annex 8 of the Dayton Agreement, it considers questions which have moved to the foreground with the inclusion of cultural heritage preservation in human rights discourse and in post-conflict and development aid.
