Reconciliation in Bosnia and Herzegovina : A qualitative study on local’s perception on the reconciliation process in Zenica

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för samhällsstudier (SS)

Sammanfattning: This research sets out to deepen our understanding of how reconciliation has been carried in by the locals in the city of Zenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina, 25 years after an ethnically related war. The thesis takes its methodological point of departure in a qualitative ethnographic field study with 14 semi-structured interviews. The findings explore the local's inner perception of truth, mercy, justice, and Peace, and it is analyzed trough John Paul Lederach’s four concepts for reconciliation, Justice, Truth, Mercy, and Peace. The main results examine how Truth, Justice, and Mercy has failed, and how Peace in somewhat has succeeded. In order for them to be achieved are political, economic and social changes needed. The results also indicate that the younger generation's perception of the status of reconciliation today in Zenica differs to a certain extent from the older generation.
