Twenty years after the outbreak of Balkan’s war, what are the wounds that still remain open? Have the Hague International Court and local courts been able to give an adequate answer to the thousands of men and women demanding justice? Or is there a need for a different form of justice?
The project, promoted by several local associations from all over former Yugoslavia, in order to create a “Women’s Court”, already provides a first answer. This Court wants to propose a different model of justice, as opposed to that of traditional courts. A court that might place at its core women and their stories: not only to tell acts of violence, but also to provide spaces for dignity, listening and the recognition of loss for that thousand of women who were raped and suffered a lot of violence during the war.
