In conversation with founder and president of the Post Conflict Research Centre (PCRC) Velma Šarić, program director Tatjana Milovanović, advisory board president Tanya Domi and research fellow Josephine Mintel, Professor Rachel Kerr with Women in War and International Politics (WIWIP) explores the innovative, creative and unconventional work of women at the Post Conflict Research Centre to restore a culture of peace and prevent violent conflict in the Western Balkans.
Moderated by Aurora Pinelli, the discussion is complemented by a Q&A, and the screening of the short documentary "Cases of Evil: Vlasenica" produced by the PCRC and PINCH Media. Through stories of victims and survivors, including survivors of sexual violence, the documentary aims to preserve the memory of the horrific crimes that took place in the Bosnian city of Vlasenica, educate about its legacy, and highlight the everyday struggle of survivors and returnees for justice and recognition.
The event is a collaboration between Women in War and International Politics and the Post Conflict Research Centre in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Rohingya community has long suffered under the Myanmar government’s decades-long policies of persecution against them, which were only exacerbated during and in the wake of the 2017 acts of genocide against them. Today, over a million Rohingya remain outside Myanmar, and an additional 600,000 in Rakhine continue to suffer. Following the February 2021 military coup, the prospect of Rohingyas’ safe return to Myanmar is even more precarious, as is the situation of those still in the country. This panel is an opportunity for international policymakers and advocates to hear directly from Rohingya leaders about challenges currently facing the community, and how the international community can best support the Rohingya people.
Online, Thursday, 24 February, 10 AM (ET).
