Tell your story

I am collecting stories about the process of transitional justice, implemented mechanisms and initiatives created to address the legacy of atrocities committed in the wars in the former Yugoslavia in 1990s.

These stories matter because they represent the first hand accounts from direct participants in the process of dealing with the past all over the region that will be used to critically evaluate the process and learn from the experienced challenges and achievements.

Tell your story
Tips for telling a great story
  • Tell your story as if you were talking to a friend or a relative. Make it personal.
  • Add photos! It is best if the first photo you add is a nice image of yourself so that people can see you as they listen to or read your story.
Tips for audio recording
  • You can re-record as many times as you want. Take a couple of practice runs until it feels more natural talking into your computer.
  • Try not to use a pre-written script so that your story sounds as natural as possible. It is ok if it is not perfect.
  • Try to speak as clearly as possible, and get as close to the microphone as you can.
  • Try to find a quiet place with no background noise. It is even better if the room has carpet. This will reduce the amount of echo on the recording.
