Description 

The International University of Sarajevo (IUS) is hosting its second summer school from June 27 to July 8, 2015. The Learning from the past - 20 Years after the Bosnian War: Education for Reconciliation and Lasting Peace in Post-Conflict Societies summer school aims to make a contribution to the process of dealing with the past, reconciliation and transitional justice approaches in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and the region.  By examining the ways how and what we can learn from the past in order to confront the challenges in the present, IUS promotes the idea of education as an essential tool for reconciliation and an agent of positive societal change in post-conflict societies.
 
We aspire to give an overview of some of the most commonly used methodologies, approaches, tools and techniques covered by disciplines related to dealing with the past and reconciliation. With the expertise of lecturers from the region and beyond, the course will also focus on new methods in social science research relevant to this important field. The summer school is organized as a combination of lectures, workshops, excursions, fieldtrips, visits to relevant institutions, introduction to governmental and non-governmental organizations, and participation in socio-cultural activities and events.

The summer school will consist of three, roughly two-hour, classroom sessions during most of the days, followed by visits to BiH government ministries, international organizations, NGOs and a four day field visit to the Srebrenica Memorial Centre (Potocari) and a post-genocide community (the village of Klotjevac) in Eastern Bosnia. The field trips will provide the participants with the opportunity to experience learning beyond the classroom in a community setting. It will provide them with a more intensive hands-on practice with methods discussed during the sessions.
