Spomenik miru u Bosni i Hercegovini postavljen u Banjaluci/Monument to Commemorate Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina Unveiled in Banja Luka

12 January 2021 – Twenty five years ago, on 14 December 1995 the Dayton Peace Agreement was signed in Paris, France, and it ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
On the same date, twenty five years latter, the United Women Foundation from Banja Luka unveiled the monument to commemorate peace.

This symbol of peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina was created as a part of the project “Peace Bench” with the main aim to contribute to the citizens’ activism in the peace processes in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Author and designer of the symbol is Milana Stijak, an architect from Banja Luka, and the initial idea was developed through peace activism activities of the United Women Foundation and a group of women and men students of the University of Banja Luka, BiH.

The City Administration of Banja Luka and the Faculty of Law of University of Banja Luka supported the idea and approved the location of the “Peace Bench” near the Faculty of Law, in order to be visible and accessible to youth people.

The project was supported through the Bosnia and Herzegovina Resilience Initiative (BHRI), implemented by USAID BiH and IOM BiH.

12. januar 2021.g. – Prije dvadeset i pet godina, 14. decembra 1995 g. je potpisan Dejtonski sporazum u Parizu, Francuska, kojim je zaustavljen rat u Bosni i Hercegovini.
Na isti datum, dvadeset pet godina kasnije Fondacija Udružene žene u Banja Luci je otkrila spomenik miru.

Ovaj simbol mira je nastao u okviru projekta “Klupa mira” čiji osnovni cilj je doprinos građanskom aktivizmu u mirovnim procesima u Bosni i Hercegovini.
Arhitektica iz Banja Luke, Milana Stijak, je osmislila i dizajnirala izgled simbola, a inicijalna ideja je nastala kroz aktivističke mirovne aktivnosti Fondacije Udružene žene i studenata i studentica Univerziteta u Banja Luci.

Grad Banja Luka i Univerzitet u Banja Luci su pružili podršku ideji i omogućili da simbol mira bude lokalizovan kod Pravnog fakulteta u Banja Luci, kako bi bio dostupan što većem broju mladih ljudi.

Cjelokupan projekat je podržan kroz BHRI, koji provode USAID BiH i IOM BiH.
