Increased youth direct, structural and symbolic violence amongst the high school population (ages 15-18) that is happening in schools and around the schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina and often leading to increased insecurity and casualties both to the pupils and teachers attending/working in schools is what Bosnia and Herzegovina partner in project “Cross border citizen network for peace, reconciliation and public safety on Balkans” chose as research topic.

    CHRONICLE No 9 - Bosnia and Herzegovina and terrorism

Observing Bosnia and Herzegovina in this time of transition, in great economic crisis, various political and economic turbulence and period of hunger and poverty - we can notice links between Bosnia and Herzegovina and certain types of terrorism and terrorist organizations. It is difficult to say that any country in the world is not linked with some kind of terrorism, and therefore B&H is not immune to this sort of violence and political influence.
After the dissolution of Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRJ)1, and after the first democratic elections in B&H, nationalist parties, whose key objective were to divide Bosnia and Herzegovina, came to power. When all of the political options for some kind of division of B&H by the nationalist parties were exhausted, governments of our neighboring countries were supported greatly with political and all kinds of actions...

Have you got an idea for a project that will involve Internet users in changing the WWWorld for the better? Enter the Discover e-volunteering competition and win a grant! ICTs and the Internet have become an important part of our everyday life. We use them not only to search for information or for entertainment, but also to support others and try to change the world for the better. There are many interesting social projects on the Web: every day people edit Wikipedia, conduct on-line language courses, provide free Web counseling, form assistance and self-help groups, promote social campaigns and many more! And we call all those actions ‘e-volunteering', because they do this for free, voluntarily! Through this Competition we hope to show the diversity of e-volunteering actions and encourage all Europeans to undertake social activity on the Internet!

You have probably heard in media that Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia were struck with a catastrophe of unheard proportions. Flooding that hasn't being recorded so far have covered more than one third of B&H. Whole cities are under water. Over tens of thousands of people have been evacuated. There are casualties; so far no one is giving exact number. A lot of places, settlements and villages are cut off from the outside world by water. To make things worse, landslides have started, many settlements ad villages are gone, hundreds of homes. There is no electricity. No water. Communications in more than half of B&H are down. We from Tuzla, beside partly with Sarajevo, have no possibility of travel communication with other cities in B&H. Several border crossings with Croatia and Serbia are cut off.
