  • Bosnia-Herzegovina - War in Bosnia
  • Bosnia-Herzegovina’s Serb, Croat and Bosniak communities were at war with other between 6 April 1992 and 14 September 1995. Fighting began with the Serb bombing of Sarajevo the day after Bosnia-Herzegovina declared independence from Yugoslavia The Bosnian Serb army eventually seized the main Serb-inhabited towns and areas and conducted "ethnic cleansing." After the July 1995 massacre of more than 8,000 Bosniak refugees by Serbian paramilitaries in Srebrenica, NATO forces attacked the Bosnian Serb militias and the Bosniak and Croat forces regained a large amount of territory. The 14 December 1995 Dayton Agreement signed by President Alija Izetbegović (Bosnia), Franjo Tudjman (Croatia) and Slobodan Milosevic (Serbia) ended the war. Bosnia-Herzegovina became a confederation of the Bozniak-Croat Federation (51% of the territory, 70% of the population) and the Bosnian Serb Republic (49% of the territory and 25% of the population).

  • Bosnia-Herzegovina - Independence
  • Bosnia-Herzegovina declared its independence from Yugoslavia after a referendum in February-March 1992 boycotted by most Bosnian Serbs. Most Serbs wanted to stay in a Yugoslav federation, most Bosniaks favoured independence and the Bosnia Croats wanted to become part of Croatia. Tension increased and war broke out on 6 April when the Serbs bombed Sarajevo.

  • Radovan Karadzic ruled the Bosnian Serb Republic after the 1991 break-up of Yugoslavia. He co-founded the Serbian Democratic Party in Bosnia-Herzegovina to rally the Serbs and defend their interests. He was accused or ordering the "ethnic cleansing" of Bosniaks and Croats and has been charged by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia with war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity. He was arrested in July 2008 and is being tried by the Court in The Hague.

  • Bosnia-Herzegovina - Serbian Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina
  • The Bosnian Serb Republic was proclaimed on 9 January 1992 based in Pale. The Dayton Agreement, signed in Paris on 14 December 1995, ended the war and gave the Serb Republic territorial and political recognition as an autonomous part of Bosnia-Herzegovina, along with the Bozniak-Croat Federation (the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina).
