Abstract

Based on the analysis of narrative-biographic interviews, this paper explores the ways in which second-generation youth of Bosnian descent in Switzerland explore, relate to, and engage with the past of their origin country and with the conflict-induced history of their parents’ migration. It examines how the legacies of the homeland conflict exert an impact on the lives of succeeding generations in the diaspora and how young people deal with and transform those legacies in the contexts of their current lives and prospects.
