Chapter Summary

Turning to the role of human rights in peacemaking, the evidence will show the ICFY negotiators pursuing the following approaches: giving a central role to human rights in the formulation of peace plans; and taking on a leading role in guarding against ethnic cleansing. The approaches also include making strong representations to the leaders on the ground about human rights issues; calling on the aid of UN peacekeepers to protect people against ethnic cleansing; and speaking out against violations of human rights. Working for human rights monitoring during and after the conflict; seeking to provide for strong institutions for the protection of human rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina and elsewhere in the former Yugoslavia; working for peace-building in the long term through respect for and protection of human rights; and striving for the protection of group and minority rights are also included.

Keywords:Bosnia; ethnic cleansing; Herzegovina; human rights; peacemaking; Yugoslavia
