Lessons of the Dayton Peace Accords
Nationalism and xenophobia were at the root of the brutal war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Unfortunately, these tactics are not new, and they are becoming common again as new political leaders around the world use nationalism to rise to power. It is up to peace-loving people to be just as passionate about a world that celebrates diversity and difference. Visit our full digital exhibit on the Dayton Peace Accords, and the aftermath of the war in the former Yugoslavia.
The museum serves as a gathering place for everyone and offers programs that celebrate music, art, books, film, new ideas, and fresh, often under-represented voices to the conversation. The museum's success depends on supporters and volunteers like you. It goes without saying, the more support we have from the community, the more we can offer in the future.
The Museum has programs throughout the year for people of all ages. Look for information soon on our summer camp program in 2023, a continuation of the Peace Pathways program for teachers, as well as programs specific to K-12 students. Students from the University of Dayton will attend classes in the museum space in the spring of 2023 as part of a microcourse program.
