Global Youth Connect, an organization dedicated to empowering youth to advance human rights is conducting a summer program in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This human rights program will focus specifically on the roots of conflict and the dynamics of justice, reconciliation, and peace building as experienced in Bosnia more than a decade after the signing of the peace accord. In particular, participants will gain experience in conflict resolution and transformation as well as deepen their understanding of the post-conflict challenges faced by Bosnians today, especially young people from various ethnic and religious backgrounds. Short-term volunteer service projects, alongside Bosnian youth participants, will take place in Sanski Most, working in conjunction with the Center for Peacebuilding and other grassroots organizations involved in the conflict resolution training session co-led by GYC’s program director, Miki Jacevic (Deputy Director, Hunt Alternatives, Washington DC).
