Research Background, Aims and Methods

  • Olivera Simic


This chapter outlines the context, aims and research methods for the original contribution of this thesis, namely the empirical study which aims to make the personal experiences of those affected by the SGB visible. This chapter is organised into two main parts. The first part explores gender politics in BH by describing the local context of my study and providing a general overview of the BH socio-political and cultural milieu prior to the war, during the war and in the post-conflict transitional period. The second part of the chapter describes the aims and methodology of the empirical case study.
