Bosnia-Herzegovina research to be published and launched in Sarajevo

Watch this space for the latest publication and research activity news from the project Religion and Reconciliation in Bosnia-Herzegovina, conducted by a team from across Bosnia-Herzegovina and the region. Researchers are currently travelling across 13 cities in Bosnia-Herzegovina, investigating stakeholder perspectives on challenges for inclusive peacebuilding at the local and state-wide levels. This is the culmination of the latest phase of a ground-breaking study launched in 2011.

Other Upcoming Events

Together with civil society partners, Relwar is currently helping to plan events in Edinburgh and in Lebanon, focused on reconciliation and humanitarian relief.

Two conferences on the interaction between religious law and international law are in preparation, the first in Nuremberg in July-August 2018, the second in Morocco in 2019.

Ongoing studies

  • Current scholarship at the Project includes work on the evaluation of military ethics education and of the role of military chaplains in ethics provision in a select group of NATO and non-NATO states, a survey of attitudes to a Truth and Reconciliation process in ten localities across Bosnia and Herzegovina, and research focusing on reconciliation, civil society and the public sphere, focusing on Bosnia and Herzegovina and on Serbia.
  • Annedore Wilmes has been awarded a consultancy to conduct research on ‘Cross-Cultural, Interreligious and Conflict Sensitive Ethics Programming’. Annedore has completed an M.Th. by research at the University of Edinburgh, with a dissertation exploring concepts of reconciliation held by Christians today.
