Abstract/Description: This research project focuses on methods of bringing sustainable peace and justice to the victims and their communities of the former Yugoslavia, specifically regarding the countries of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Serbia. The paper discusses the various restorative and retributive justice mechanisms that have been established to bring justice to the Balkan region. There has been insufficient scholarly investigation into both perspectives of justice, while also considering the opinions of locals and victims who lived through the conflict. The conclusions from this paper will be helpful to victims, community members, political leaders, and nongovernmental, civil society, and international organizations in this specific region in order to successfully restore justice. The primary research in this study involved several qualitative interviews with various representatives from nongovernmental and international organizations, the Tribunal that incarcerates perpetrators of the human rights abuses that occurred in the 1990s, and locals who lived either in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, or Serbia during the conflicts. The research attempts to determine what is missing in these countries to achieve sustainable peace. Conclusively, persistent themes are acknowledged through these interviews and addressed in a methodological foundation to attain viable reconciliation in the context of the region.
