More about our Trustees.

The Scottish charity coordinates Srebrenica awareness activities in Scotland, commemorations and the Scottish Schools Education programme. It also fundraises and manages the “Lessons of Srebrenica” programme in Scotland. The charity is supported by the Scottish Governments Connecting Communities Fund. It has no paid staff.

Despite only being created in 2016. The charity receives high level support across the political spectrum and is already well established in Scottish civic society.

Beyond Srebrenica is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) No SCO46540.



In July 2015, Scotland marked the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide with a large service within St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh, attended by Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP. At this service the First Minister met the Mothers of Srebrenica and pledged to visit them in Bosnia. In August 2016 she fulfilled that promise and visited the Potocari Cemetery further raising the profile of the charity and its work.

The Scottish Board identified the need to become a separate charity in Scotland and created Remembering Srebrenica (Scotland).

In 2024 the charity expanded its remit to also recognise attrocities that happened elsewhere in Bosnia and renamed to Beyond Srebrenica. This new identity also recognised the objective of taking lessons from the Bosnian War and applying them in the current time.
