The parallels between Daesh and violent white ultranationalists should inspire everyone to be vigilant against a rising tide of far-right terrorism and the mainstream narratives that enable it.
A UN court heard the appeal of former Serb leader Radovan Karadzic who was found guilty of 10 charges, including genocide in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.
Karadzic was convicted two years ago for some of the worst war crimes committed as the former Yugoslavia broke apart in the 1990s, including the 1995 Srebrenica massacre in which around 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed.
Ratko Mladic, former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic and ex-Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic are accused of forming a "joint criminal enterprise" to create a Greater Serbia by ridding the territory of Bosnian Muslims and non-Serbs.
In 1993, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia was formed in the wake of the massacres in Prijedor. It was to hold those most responsible for the violence in the region to account. Yet many are dubious about its achievements.
The judgement in Ratko Mladic's trial has not brought catharsis for survivors and victims' families. It has also failed in establishing a greater understanding of the crimes that transpired in Bosnia in the 90s.
Survivors of the 1995 Srebrenica genocide and human rights organisations welcome the sentencing of former Bosnian Serbian commander Ratko Mladic to life imprisonment after he was found guilty of genocide and war crimes in the Bosnian war.
Ratko Mladic is accused of committing war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity during Bosnia's 1992-1995 war.
Thousands attend a ceremony at the Potocari memorial near Srebrenica commemorating the deaths of 8,000 Bosnian Muslims in July 1995, as Serbian nationalists still refuse to recognise the massacre as a genocide.
