St Antony’s College, Oxford
2017 marks the 22nd anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide- the worst atrocity committed on European soil since the Second World War. As part of a host of commemorative community action events, Remembering Srebrenica are proud to be holding an international academic conference, the only one of its kind in the UK, titled:
22nd Anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide: Justice, Education and Commemoration
By investigating ideas surrounding justice, education and commemoration, our panels, comprised of global experts in their field, will probe how the UK and the wider international community can learn the lessons from Srebrenica. Now more than ever, it is vital that as a society we understand the corrosive effects of hatred and its horrific consequences if left unchecked. Through academic endeavour, we can ensure that the victims and survivors of Srebrenica are never erased from history.
Speakers will include:
Ed Vulliamy, Award winning journalist with The Guardian and The Observer, and author on Bosnia.
H.E Edward Ferguson, the British Ambassador to Bosnia-Herzegovina
Allan Little, BBC special correspondent who reported extensively from Bosnia during the conflict.
They will be joined by other world-renowned speakers, to be announced over the next month, from academia, education, the media and law, who will share their ideas over the course of three panels.
Tickets are available for the earlybird price of £10 until 7th February.
(regular price £25)
Ticket includes lunch.
