Did the West Fail Bosnia?
Bosnia: a three year war that left 100,000 dead and 2.2 million displaced in the most devastating European conflict since World War II. Fighting ended only when NATO troops swept in to destroy Bosnian Serb armour and force all sides into peace talks. It was a model repeated in Kosovo, Iraq and Libya. Yet 25 years later, Bosnia is still divided and military intervention has a bad name. What does Bosnia tell us about the West's role in conflict resolution, post-war justice proceedings and the merits of interventionism?
Allan Little, former BBC correspondent and author of 'The Death of Yugoslavia', will highlight key turning points of the 1992-95 conflict.
Baroness Arminka Helic, former special advisor to William Hague and foreign policy expert, will discuss the West's role in Bosnia and the lessons for intervention today.
Professor James Gow, professor of International Peace and Security at Kings College London, will speak on the international justice and war crimes proceedings following the war.
Paul Lowe, award winning photographer and Photojournalism Course Director at University of the Arts London, will exhibit photos taken during the conflict. There will be an opportunity for Q&A.
