Following the signing of the peace agreement and the end of three-and-a-half years of siege, Sarajevo simultaneously experienced a double transition, from war to peace and from socialism to capitalism, that was marked by an increasing international intervention. This book presents a study of the urban transformation of Sarajevo during the post-war period and considers both the role and the impact of the international community in its spatial and ethnic configuration. Part I focuses on the period of maximum international involvement developed at local level, from December 1995 until 2003, and comprises chapters on the ethno-territorial division of the city, the reconstruction of its ethnic diversity and the liberal transition fostered and imposed internationally. Part II deals with the impact of these policies on the current spatial, functional and ethnic configuration in the area of Sarajevo.

Provides an original work about a symbolic city, Sarajevo, that is very significant in European history

Examines the less known international intervention after the siege

Account on its complex transformation, including the role of main local actors

Includes the post-socialist transition and the urban spatial restructuring

During the last decade, he has conducted several field researches in Sarajevo and a research stay in the USA, at Virginia Tech. He has already published in several national and international top journals addressing issues in both fields of Human and Physical Geography. More specifically, he has published 9 articles in journals and 3 book chapters and given 13 lectures, most of them in international conferences. He also supervised 11 MSc dissertations. Finally, he has been so far integrated into Research Grant Fellow in 3 projects, and he was a PhD fellowship between 2012 and 2016 of the Spanish Ministry of Education.
