The 2nd edition of the book "Peacebuilding and Civil Society in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Ten Years after Dayton" is available as hardcopy (29,90 EUR). The Dayton Accords ended the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina in 1995. The 10th anniversary of that achievement gives reason to investigate the post-war period - today\'s realities and future perspectives. For this project, authors from Bosnia, along with international experts, express their views on recent developments. Insiders and outsiders, working in the conflict and on its transformation, have been invited to address the following questions: Which conflict lines demarcate the contemporary society? Did peacebuilding activities address the underlying causes of violent conflict? What obstacles are there for conflict transformation? What are the potentials and limits of international support? What does 'civil society' mean in Bosnia and how is it related to statebuilding and democratisation? How can people constructively deal with the past in order to design the future in the region of former Yugoslavia?"Peacebuilding and Civil Society in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Ten Years after Dayton", published in 2006, thus gives an overview of an important research focus for the Berghof Research Center, highlighting the work of some of its most important cooperation partners.Crucially, publication of this book has also sparked off on-going discussions about the role of civil society in building peace, some of which will be published on the website of the Berghof Research Center in the coming months.
