3 FMR 50 - Annex 7: why are we still discussing it? Annex 7 to the Dayton Peace Agreement was designed to address the displacement of 2.2 million people during the Bosnian war of 1992-95. Its job is not yet done. María del Pilar Valledor Álvarez 01 Sep 2015

8 FMR 50 - Property rights and reconstruction in the Bosnian return process Sidelining a rights-based approach in the area of property restitution and reconstruction in Bosnia and Herzegovina resulted in an unequal impact on rural versus urban displaced populations. Inmaculada Serrano 01 Sep 2015
9 FMR 50 - Resolving protracted displacement through social housing A social housing methodology recently introduced in Bosnia and Herzegovina illustrates the need for certain key components in any strategy to address the shelter and livelihoods needs of vulnerable citizens. Marc D’Silva, Sanela Imamovic 01 Sep 2015

14 FMR 50 - If women are left out of peace talks The exclusion of women from the process of making peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina has diminished the prospects for sustainable peace.

15 FMR 50 - Interpretations of Annex 7: assessing the impact on non-returnees in the UK Emphasising the crucial role of refugee returns to the future of Bosnia and Herzegovina risks minimising the agency of those who choose not to exercise their rights under Annex 7. Gayle Munro 01 Sep 2015

What role can remote voting play? Djordje Stefanovic, Neophytos Loizides 01 Sep 2015
17 FMR 50 - Home after Dayton: IDPs in Sarajevo The experiences of displaced people in Sarajevo show that living in a place that people perceive to be safe and to provide opportunities can be more desirable than returning to one’s place of origin. Participatory urban projects can help foster community. Gruia Badescu 01 Sep 2015

19 FMR 50 - Prijedor: re-imagining the future Public memorialisation in Bosnia and Herzegovina today is an act of remembering not just those who died in the conflict but also the multi-ethnic reality of earlier times. Articulation of this, however, is being obstructed in cities like Prijedor. Damir Mitrić, Sudbin Musić 01 Sep 2015
20 FMR 50 - Mass evacuations: learning from the past Twenty years after the evacuations from the Bosnian ‘safe areas’, humanitarians continue to struggle with dilemmas around humanitarian evacuations. Caelin Briggs 01 Sep 2015
