In a region where multiple interpretations of the recent past are still in collision with each other and where facts are misused for exclusive narratives of single-community victimhood, the process of reconciliation continues to be delayed and obstructed. The various ethnic groups in the region continue to hold conflicting views of their joint history, while denial and justification of crimes are still widespread, in spite of the wealth of judicially established facts and available evidence. Humanitarian Law Center’s Schools for Transitional Justice raise awareness of its participants about the importance of accepting the facts about the armed conflicts of the 1990s by all post-Yugoslav nations. By providing them with the knowledge about the facts, it empowers them to spread that awareness further in their communities and countries. The regional component of the educational programme produces an alumni network of activists and professionals active in various segments of the civil and political societies in the region. This contributes to a greater cohesion between these individual activists, as well as between their organizations from different countries of the region, and enable them to act together or in close coordination, in order to raise awareness about, and advocate for, the need of the post-Yugoslav societies to reach a shared view about their joint, recent, violent past. Through educating young, socially and politically active citizens of the target countries the School for transitional justice aims to achieve several interconnected goals, all aimed at facilitating the processes of peace-building through inter-ethnic dialogue, careful management of the crucial post-conflict issues, and peaceful conciliation of the conflicting historical memories held by different ethnic groups.
