July 2015 marks 20 years since the fall of the UN-declared safe area of Srebrenica, which led to the mass murder of more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslims by Bosnian Serb troops over four days in July 1995. The massacre marked the single greatest atrocity committed in Europe since the Second World War, and has been declared an act of genocide by the war crimes tribunal for former Yugoslavia in The Hague. Panellists discussed the events that led to the massacre and the lessons the UN and Member States have drawn from this tragedy to strengthen the UN capacity to prevent atrocities and protect the civilians under threat.
