MAKING SENSE OF EXTREMISM IN THE BOSNIAN FOOTBALL TERRACES: AN INITIAL ANALYSIS
AbstractOriginal Scientific Paper
This paper presents an initial assessment of the results of a four-month research project studying Ultras in BiH. This research contributed to the Bosnia & Herzegovina Resilience Initiative (BHRI) Programme (implemented by the International Organization for Migration - United Nations, funded and closely coordinated with the U.S. Agency for International Development -USAID) aiming to reduce the threat of violent extremism in BiH and to counter extremist efforts to deepen or exploit communal tensions.
