Twenty years after Dayton: Stories of war, justice and politics

29 min
The stories of three Swedes whose lives were, in different ways, deeply affected by the war in Bosnia.

The conflict in Bosnia was by far the bloodiest of the Yugoslav wars. Around half of the country's population fled their homes and thousands settled here in Sweden.

Radio Sweden brings you the stories of three Swedes whose lives were deeply affected by the war, which officially ended 20 years ago with the signing of the Dayton Accords, a US-brokered peace deal.

On December 14th 1995, the leaders of Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia signed the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina - or the Dayton Accords. They signed it in a Parisian palace, surrounded by European heads of state, world leaders and international organisation chiefs.

But for many of those who had lived through the war, it was too little, too late.
