On Thursday, I had the pleasure of being hosted on Al Jazeera's excellent mixed-media discussion program, The Stream, along with analysts and activists Darko Brkan, Ivana Cvetković Bajrović and Adnan Huskić. The experience was a positive one from beginning to end and I felt very satisfied, indeed, proud to have had an opportunity to move the dialogue on BiH in a more constructive direction, even if only for a moment, and with great help from my colleagues.
It is, after all, by stringing together moments--moments of hope and mobilization--that change happens. However, one might say it all begins with changing narratives. And the kinds of movements Darko Brkan, in particular, made reference to during the program (and has had a large hand in shaping and guiding) are precisely the sorts that will make change happen in BiH and, hopefully, the whole of the former Yugoslavia.
Until then, our growing mass will remain blissfully, happily, purposefully "ethnically challenged" and indebted to the good people at The Stream for having given us the opportunity to speak up.
