In July 1995, the Bosnian Serb Army commanded by General Ratko
Mladic attacked the enclave of Srebrenica, a UN OC safe areaOCO
since 1993, and massacred about 8,000 Bosniac men. While the
responsibility for the massacre itself lays clearly with the Serb
political and military leadership, the question of the
responsibility of various international organizations and national
authorities for the fall of the enclave is still passionately
discussed, and has given rise to various rumors and conspiracy
theories. Follow-up investigations by the International Criminal
Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and by several commissions have
dissipated most of these rumors and contributed to a better
knowledge of the Srebrenica events and the part played by the main
local and international actors. This volume represents the first
systematic, comparative analysis of those investigations. It brings
together analyses from both the external standpoint of academics
and the inside perspective of various professionals who
participated directly in the inquiries, including police officers,
members of parliament, high-ranking civil servants, and other
experts. Evaluating how institutions establish facts and ascribe
responsibilities, this volume presents a historiographical and
epistemological reflection on the very possibility of writing a
history of the present time."
