Twenty years ago this December, a three-year-long civil war ended in Bosnia and Herzegovina with a complex power sharing arrangement that split the country in two.

The US-brokered Dayton accords carved the once-multiethnic nation into mini-states: the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina administered by Bosniaks and Croats; and the Republika Srpska, administered by Serbs.

This division created a complicated political structure that also divided the media landscape.

The coverage of unresolved topics like the genocide at Srebrenica, when 8,000 Muslim men and boys were slaughtered, is still reported along ethnic lines.

In an effort to address the divide, some journalists are banding together to combat the dysfunctional federal government which cannot agree over what the country should look like.
