Episode Two of The Defuser is out now!

Last year, Dr. Timothy Donais led a field school from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario to Bosnia & Herzegovina. There, students traced the roots of the 1992-1995 conflict that followed the disintegration of Yuguslavia, and learned about international peacekeeping efforts to negotiate the Dayton Accords and rebuild the new states.

In this episode, Dr. Donais speaks about the residual dangers of landmines in Bosnia, the impact of the conflict upon Canadian peacekeeping efforts, and Canada’s current struggle to renew its status as a middle power in the international order.
