Our study trips are an opportunity to take part in a unique learning experience about the Bosnian genocide, history, and culture. Participants will be challenged to think critically about the genocide and its contemporary relevance to us here in the UK today.
We usually run one week-long study trip per year but are planning to do more from 2023 onwards due to an influx of requests. During the study trip we visit relevant historical sites, meet and speak with survivors of the Bosnian genocide and we also invite you to learn about the programmes and initiatives that are currently in place in Bosnia that aim to deal with this difficult past.
The trips are self-funded and BGET organise all travel, accommodation and activities. We like to keep the group numbers relatively small so that we can maintain a more intimate experience. Detailed itineraries are provided upon confirmation of place on the study trip.
Participants will have the opportunity to attend workshops before and after the study trip.
Please get in touch if you would like more information or have any questions.
