This paper aims to investigate two research questions. The first question is of an empirical nature where we intend to analyze how the political, economical and social life looks like in Sarajevo and Banja Luka. The second question is of a constructive nature, where we try to focus on what can be done in the cities to start the reconciliation process.
Concerning the first question, there are critical issues that needs to be considered and evaluated. The second approach is somewhat difficult, but we can se that urban policy-making needs to be implemented; mainly a neutral and equal policy approach. One key element in the reconciliation process is the youth in the cities. We argue that they are crucial for the development of societies. (Less)
