PCRCTalks – series of interactive discussions with leaders in the field of peace building, reconciliation, transitional justice, human rights and democracy.
At the end of 2018, an interactive lecture was organized with Ajna Jusić where we talked about children who were born as a result of war-time rape. Children born of war are often marginalized in society and face numerous legal obstacles, as well as general social invisibility. The aim of the discussion was to inspire young people and challenge the stereotypes that this category faces. Jusić graduated in psychology from the University of Sarajevo and attended the Academy for Young Leaders in Civil Society. She is the president of the “Forgotten Children of War” Association and former activist of the CURE Foundation. Through her work, Jusić fights for the rights of the LGBT community, women, minorities (especially the Roma population) and children with special needs. She is currently working on her first publication aimed at increasing social awareness of children born as a result of war-time sexual violence. Her inspiring work is an excellent example of youth empowerment and activism.
