Seeking Truth in the Balkans is a documentary project that explores the legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) from the human rights versus the jurisprudential perspective. As one of the project partners, PCRC is transcribing all interviews conducted for the film in order to create a database that houses the important information uncovered during the filmmaking process.
“In Vareš, promises outweigh prospects, and prospects outweigh production.” During the post-civil war period (i.e., since 1995), this phrase has become a virtual mantra for the central Bosnian town we call the “Little Apple.” The study, for which PCRC was a primary research partner, is not theoretical but rather, represents an unusual (in the field of Bosnian ethnographic research) longitudinal community appraisal of persistence, survival, and “getting by” at the margins.

As a result of its Ordinary Heroes Peacebuilding Program, PCRC has become a hub for the collection and recording of rescuer testimonies from the Bosnian war from 1992 – 95. PCRC is currently developing the plans for an Ordinary Heroes Digital Archive, which will be an online repository of rescue narratives and survivor testimonials involving rescue during the Bosnian War.
