Renewed Concerns Over Religious Tensions in Bosnia

Dec 3, 2021

From 1992-1995, Bosnia endured a brutal ethno-religious war, as Bosnian Serbs ethnically cleansed their Muslim neighbors in the east of the country. The 1995 Dayton Accords, brokered by the United States, ended the conflict, and created a unique power-sharing arrangement between predominantly Orthodox Christian Serbs, Muslim Bosniaks, and Catholic Croats. This fragile arrangement now appears to be in crisis and USCIRF remains very concerned about the prospect of renewed violence and religious freedom violations.

USCIRF Senior Policy Analyst Jason Morton joins us today to provide some background on Bosnia and discuss the religious freedom situation in more detail.
