Redress for Victims of
the NATO Bombing of
the Radio Television
of Serbia: The Example
of Monuments
Jasmina Kijevcanin1
The year 2019 marked the 20th anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization’s (NATO) intervention in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and
the end of the Kosovo War. I take this as an opportunity to reflect on the
role, importance and impact of the NATO bombing victims’ redress. This article
unwraps the process of policymaking aimed at the redress for victims of the
NATO bombing, exploring how policymakers formulated policies and, among
other issues, what role the families of the Radio Television of Serbia employees
who died in the NATO bombing have in the formulation of these policies.

The redress for the Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) victims includes material
reparations to the victims’ families, monuments, a trial to the RTS Director
Dragoljub Milanović and an establishment of the commission for exploration of
the death of the RTS workers. Also, the victims of the RTS bombing were acknowl-
edged in some written and audio–visual materials including the book Tišina u
Aberdarevoj (Silence in Aberdareva Street) and the movie Anatomija bola
(Anatomy of Pain). Representatives of both government and non-government
