Abstract

Following Bosnia’s declaration of independence from the former Yugoslavia in 1992, an ethnic war ensued in which Bosnian Muslims became the victims of crimes against humanity carried out by Serb forces. The Bosnian War lasted from 1992-1995, during which 100,000 people died and millions more were displaced, the majority of whom were Bosnian Muslims. This study briefly looked at the causes of crimes against humanity and analyzed the peacekeeping efforts, the establishment of a criminal tribunal, and the multilateral humanitarian intervention by the international community during the Bosnian War to determine the effectiveness of these methods in preventing future cases involving crimes against humanity.
