A group of young Interns from Mexico, the Netherlands, France, the United States, and Germany visited the Sarajevo Information Centre situated in the Sarajevo City Hall.

During the tour, Interns visited the premises of the Sarajevo Information Centre, authentic Courtroom 2 of the ICTY where individuals accused of war crimes committed in the territory of the former Yugoslavia stood trials, and the Centre’s Museum which consists of photographs, parts of testimonies, and other exhibits taken from the ICTY/MICT database, and as such, were used as evidence at the hearings conducted before the ICTY/MICT.

During the visit, the young researchers learned about the legacy of the ICTY, as well as its achievements when it comes to establishing the facts, bringing justice to victims, holding leaders accountable, individualising guilt, and as well as today’s challenges faced by communities in a post-conflict society.

Today’s visit is the result of friendly cooperation established between the City of Sarajevo, that is, the Information Centre and Post-Conflict Research Center Organization (PCRC), whose cooperation has been ongoing since 2018, when it was officially crowned with the signing the Memorandum of Cooperation.
