The “Victims of War” project was conducted in 2004 by the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg, Germany. It was supported by many NGOs and universities as well as by the Hamburg Foundation for Social Research. The aim of the project was to deliver explorative empirical data on the topic of macro-victimization in wars and to close a major research gap in the important areas of conflict resolution, transitional justice research, and especially victimology / criminology.

Some readings for the Easter break: a paper on the new member states and how well/bad they fare in the EU (might be interesting to see what problems the future new SEE members will be confronted with) (in German); a paper on ethnic violence in Vojvodina (in English); and a paper on the constitutional changes in Bosnia-Herzegovina (in B/C/S). Click on "more" to see the references of the brand-new papers.
