Marshall D. Shulman Seminar Room (1219 IAB 420 W. 118th St, 12th fl)
The year 2017 marks 25 years since the outbreak of war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the subsequent consistent building up of interlocking institutions in, with and for the region. Yet, the year 2016 saw the start of the challenging of those institutions and so far the indications are that those challenges will not end anytime soon. The roundtable’s objective is to share and discuss which transatlantic perspectives remain pertinent and how political cooperation can be maintained in a situation dominated by nationalist discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.
