James Hill

James Hill is a former intern at the Post-Conflict Research Center in Sarajevo. He is a graduate of History and Politics from the University of Leicester in England where he tailored his degree towards the study of BiH and the rest of former Yugoslavia. James is particularly interested in the city of Sarajevo and its historical background as a meeting point of cultures and believes that Bosnia has a vital role to play as a bridge between east and west, especially at a time of wider instability within European and international relations. He feels that BiH is often side-lined and somewhat ignored by larger nations, including his home country of the UK.

Yet around the world walls and fences continue to divide people. "Walls", a film by Pablo Iraburu and Migueltxo Molina, follows the real-life stories of the people living on both sides of such barriers.
