Lecture: “International Legal Challenges Facing BiH”

On Thursday, June 5th, 2014, Dr. Damir Arnaut, the Legal Advisor, expert and former Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina for Australia  delivered a lecture: “International Legal Challenges Facing Bosnia and Herzegovina” at the International University of Sarajevo (IUS). He addressed several well-known legal battles that took place and are still taking place concerning issues such as alleged war crimes, maritime border disputes and human rights related to BiH.

Among other matters, he spoke at length about his successful defense in case of Dr. Ejup Ganić who was unjustly detained and indicted for war crimes in the British Courts in 2010. This was an example that perfectly clarified the nature of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina as being categorized as a war of aggression by a foreign state. The lecture was well attended and followed by several questions and an interesting discussion.
