ABSTRACT
The article discusses the lessons learned from the Siege of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina by Serbian forces which began on April 6, 1992 and ended in October 1995. The battle was reportedly the longest siege in modern history and the most international which made the city of Sarajevo the media face of post-Cold War conflict and humanitarian intervention. As implicated in the Siege of Sarajevo, siege warfare lives and sieges presently have a global audience. The siege also showed that humanitarian aid is part of the war economy.
