Bosnia, el cadáver de Dayton
• Bosnia as a warning to the world.
|Though long at peace, the Bosnian city of Mostar has two of everything: fire brigades, garbage collection companies, hospitals, nightclubs and soccer teams. The city’s two main ethnic groups, Muslim Bosniaks and Catholic Croats, rarely interact. Above, tourists at a Franciscan monastery there.
|These persistent ethnonationalist fissures are paralyzing the country at large, which has been run by three elected presidents — one each for Bosnian Serbs, Croats and Muslims — since the 1995 agreement that halted Europe’s worst conflict since World War II.
|As Europe and the U.S. struggle with the rise of ethnic nationalism, Bosnia’s divisions offer a dark lesson in how communities can stay splintered long after many people have forgotten what it was that pushed them apart.
|“You are looking at your own future here,” a scholar in Bosnia told us.
