Episode 4: Peace agreement vs justice
Duration: 37 mins

Following the fall of Srebrenica in July 1995, 40,000 people are scattered around eastern Bosnia. Thousands are in a refugee camp around Tuzla airport, but thousands are also still missing, or dead including the 8,000 men and boys over the age of 16 massacred by Bosnian Serb forces.

As July 1995 goes down in history as one of the deadliest months of the Bosnian War, the focus shifts to the international community. Pressure is mounting on the international actors involved in the Bosnian war…in particular on the Dutch whose Blue Helmet peacekeepers also known as Dutchbats were stationed inside Srebrenica during the fall.

But where does the responsibility lie for the inaction? And what can MSF do to make sure that peace does not take precedence over justice?
And while the investigations and tribunals on Srebrenica begin, how can the international community make sure that the events of July 1995, are not repeated in one of the other Muslim enclaves in the region?
