Program Description:

SIT Study Abroad Serbia, Bosnia, and Kosovo: Peace and Conflict Studies in the Balkans

NOTE: SIT will make every effort to maintain its programs as described. To respond to emergent situations, like COVID-19, SIT may have to modify programs.

Study peacebuilding, post-conflict transformation, and the impact of international intervention and political transition in three southeast European countries.

WHY STUDY PEACE AND CONFLICT IN THE BALKANS?

The Balkans experienced a series of separate but related conflicts throughout the 1990s. Belgrade, the capital of Yugoslavia until its breakup in 1992, is your base as you study post-conflict transformation in three Balkan countries. One of the oldest cities in Europe, Belgrade sits at the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers. It was strategically important throughout the ages, however, these days the capital of Serbia is better known for its nightlife, earning a reputation as the city that never sleeps.
You’ll also spend extensive time in Bosnia-Herzegovina’s capital, Sarajevo, known for its striking architecture and religious and cultural diversity, and Kosovo’s capital, Prishtina, a unique city with Ottoman influences and a strong international presence. You’ll meet with representatives from civil society organizations and academic institutions.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
