Bogdan Denitch on the Balkans

Bogdan Denitch is a Professor Emeritus at City University of NY where he headed the sociology Department for 12 years. He founded and ran the Socialist Scholars Conference held at Cooper Union for a quarter century. He currently runs a NGO based in Zagreb, Croatia fighting for the return of refugees to the region after a decade of war. We spoke with him about the impact of the uncompleted war crimes trial in The Hague of former Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevich.

Slobodan Milosevich was one of the key figures in the Yugoslav war during the 1990s. He was indicted in May 1999, by the United Nation’s International Criminal Tribunal for crimes against humanity in Kosovo. Milosevich died in custody in The Hague on March 11, 2005 before a final verdict on his case was reached.
