Title An Anthropology of War and Recovery: Lived War Experiences

English abstract
The 1991-95 wars in the former Yugoslavia were dealt with by anthopologists and ethnologists as the conflict was actually ongoing. Ethnographic fieldwork among civilians rendered refined knowledge of daily life, processes of identification, and patterns of action. Such knowledge often remains overlooked, especially in the shadows of the many analyses of political discourses, documents, institutions, and the role of the media. However, such ethnographic work is central to any understanding of the effects of military violence on people and the difficulties they meet in the processes of individual and societal recovery.
