FAB Wants Pivo 

The Dayton Accords ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina 10 years ago today. Yet, for the average Bosnian outside of Sarajevo and maybe Banja Luka, the ethnic divisions of a decade ago are as salient as ever and the confusing political organization isn't helping. This summer in Srebenica, following the commemoration of the massacre, tensions were running as high as they had ever been. FAB wonders how a region of people who have spent the better part of the last 20 years defining themselves by their perceived differences from each other and from Europe will cohere and transition into the European community. And will the European community want a potential powder keg with an unemployment rate of 40%?

NPR on the state of things.
