We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today.

Bosnian Elections

This weekend, President Clinton’s Bosnia policy will be put to a crucial test. Bosnian Muslims, Croats and Serbs will go to the polls in the first national election since the end of the bloody civil war in that country. But the election alone cannot heal this fractured nation; the campaigns themselves have been nationalistic and divisive. The Bosnian election itself is a massive undertaking — tens of thousands of refugees are expected to cross former battle lines to vote in the hometowns they fled during the war. And, there are serious concerns that Bosnia could explode again into violence even before election results are in.

GUESTS:

BOGDAN DENICH, Director of the Institute for Transition to Democracy in Zagreb, Croatia and Belgrade, Serbia and a Professor of Sociology and Chair of the Faculty at the City University of New York Graduate Center.

KEMAL KURSPAHIC, Washington Correspondent for the Sarajevo Daily
