On the occasion of the anniversary of the Dayton Peace Agreement, the Association for Social Research and Communication (UDIK) will organize a round table “Memorialization as an instrument of (non) reconciliation in the community”. In addition to discussing current memorialization and monumental culture in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region, the latest data of the Central Register of Monuments will also be presented.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region, there is a continuous construction of memorials dedicated to the war sufferings of the nineties. Often these monuments do not contribute to the process of reconciliation and the healthy dealing with the past in the community. The Central Register of Monuments created by UDIK is a record of those memorials built in the post-conflict period that are dedicated to the war victims of the nineties. This record includes more than 3,500 mapped monuments built in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. The mapping of Montenegro and Serbia is ongoing. Last year UDIK published data on 2,150 memorials built in Bosnia and Herzegovina. On this round table will be presented data and publication about 1,200 memorials built in Croatia. At the round table will be Amra Custo from Cantonal Institute for Cultural – Historical and Natural Heritage Sarajevo and Vjeran Pavlakovic from the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Rijeka.
