Bosnian Serb nationalism remains high

Serbs lived alongside Muslims and Croats in Banja Luka, but a new generation is growing up with little will to integrate

    Banja Luka is the biggest city in Republika Srpska, the Serb region of Bosnia.

    The people of Republika Srpska may have wanted change, but they voted in the same party as the previous elections. But the answer lies in the past.

    One of the consequences of the war was the exodus of thousands of muslims from this region. The mosques destroyed here in Banja Luka have been rebuilt, and so have relations. One top muslim politician says he’s concerned about the growth of Serb nationalism here

    Like much of this region Banja Luka used to be a place where Serbs lived alongside Muslims and Croats, but a new generation is growing up with no memory of that time - and there's no will here to integrate.
