About

Bosnia-Herzegovina Protest Files is an initiative by an open network of activists and academics collecting and translating texts being produced by BiH citizens during the ‘Bosnian Spring.’ We are motivated and inspired by the initiative and creativity of those protesting on the streets in Bosnia and nascent attempts at practicing direct democracy. We believe that the words of ordinary people at moments of revolutionary change and upheaval are important and should be part of the conversation. They are also a refreshing antidote the nationalist fear-mongering, political spin and ‘expert opinion’ about current events in the region. The contents of this website should not be considered an exhaustive account of the literature being produced in BiH but merely what our network of volunteers has so far been made aware of and been able to translate.
