The Netherlands and the Tragedy of Srebrenica
(Willem Breedveld) The Low Countries - 2003, № 11, pp. 295-297
On 11 July 1995 the Bosnian Serb army overran the ‘safe haven' of Srebrenica, a Muslim enclave in Bosnia that was under the protection of the United Nations. In the days that followed, 7,500 Muslim men and boys were brutally murdered. Dutchbat, the Dutch UN peacekeeping force, was powerless to intervene. The author writes about the subsequant enquiries.
