Bosnia in Conflict

KS3 & 4 Post-1945 Conflicts
Yugoslavia was a state that was created after the First World War. Bosnia-Herzegovina was one of the six states that made up the most ethnically diverse federal state in Europe. After the collapse of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, Bosnia declared independence. The fighting between Bosnian Muslims and Bosnian Serbs was bitter and let to the siege of Sarejevo and the massacre at Srebrenica. The Serbs followed a policy of ethnic cleansing to try and get rid of the Muslims. NATO airstrikes against the Serbs in 1995 led to a peace treaty which split Bosnia into Muslim and Serb areas.

Learning Resource - Kenya in Conflict

Kenya in Conflict

KS3 & 4 Post-1945 Conflicts
British involvement in Kenya began in the late 19th century when Africa was divided up between European nations. After the Second World War, many Africans who had served for Britain, returned to Kenya hoping for a better life there. This led to violent uprisings against British rule. By 1963, Kenya was independent and Africanisation made things increasingly difficult for non-Kenyan citizens. Many left Kenya and came to Britain.

Learning Resource - Kosovo in Conflict

Kosovo in Conflict

KS3 & 4 Post-1945 Conflicts
Kosovo has been disputed over by Serbs and Albanians. In 1974, Kosovo became the seventh federal state of Yugoslavia whilst still remaining part of Serbia. The Kosovan conflict began in 1990 when Serbia imposed direct rule. Passive resistance from Kosovan Albanians turned into active violence. A peace conference in 1999 failed and soon afterward NATO air strikes took place. Eventually this led to Serb withdrawal and the return of refugees. 4000 refugees were resettled in Britain.

Learning Resource - The Falklands Conflict

The Falklands Conflict

KS3 & 4 Post-1945 Conflicts
The Falkland Islands, a British overseas territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean, was invaded by Argentina on 3rd April 1982. The Falklands, and other British territories in the region, including the island of South Georgia, had long been claimed by Argentina. Britain’s own claim to sovereignty over the islands is based on both continuous possession since 1833 and on the wishes of the islanders themselves. Argentina’s claim on the Falklands, which it calls Las Malvinas, rests on its inheritance of them, after its own declaration of independence in 1816, from Spain.
