Statement of European Center for Humand Rights on the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide

Today we commemorate and honor all the victims of the massacre and all the atrocities during the wars in former Yugoslavia and we express our solidarity with their families. We strongly believe that the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide is a fresh reminder of the dangers of extreme forms of nationalism and intolerance in society leading to war.


Regional cooperation in Western Balkan and the European integration process are the best ways to promote conciliation and to overcome hatred and divisions. As the ECHR partnership we will continue to play an active role in the reconciliation process and will contribute to the necessary reforms and further EU integration of the Western Balkan countries. This is the best means to achieve a better future for the people of the Western Balkans and for all Europeans.
