Abstract: In the case of Bosnian War (1992-1995), International Participation has just maintained interethnic peace with limitedsuccess.Peace-keeping strategiesimplemented without consensussubsequently set up an environment in which ethnic cleansings transformedinto genocide in UN “ Safe Areas†. According to World Bank’s reports; following the end of military conflict late 1995, of a pre-war population of 4.4 million, an estimated 250,000 people had lost their lives or were considered missing, 200,000 to 400,000 people had been wounded, and an estimated 2.5 million people, more than half the population, either left the country as refugees or were internally displaced (The World Bank Report,2004). Despite what has happened during the turmoil, the worst happened in Srebrenica as one of UN Security Zone which was protected by Dutch soldiers. Still it is unknown how many people had lost their lives in Srebrenica. According to Human Right WatchReports, ethnic cleansing in Bosnia was systematically planned and implemented by Serbian irregulars. In this article, it is aimed to illustrate the negative effectsof dissolving interethnic peace in Bosnia. The case of Bosnian interethnic war has been examined from security matter to genocide
