The aim of the conference organization was to discuss establishment of B-H diplomacy in the most difficult war conditions, which is a phenomenon and not explored area. In this regard personality and work of Dr. Irfan Ljubijankić, as one of the main protagonists in the process of creation and success of diplomacy was enlightened.
Two panels were frames for the discussion on the issues of diplomacy and war, what happens with the diplomacy in war conditions, where is the line between diplomacy and war propaganda, international action and the role of foreign diplomats and mediators in B-H, creating and running the Bosnian foreign policy in terms of war, as well as some other issues.
In the first panel, which was moderated by Dr. Selmo Cikotić, the most important questions were discussed from the academic and scientific point of view, while the second panel gave diplomatic experience review with the participation of some of the most important diplomats such as Osman Topčagić , Hajrudin Somun, Sabit Subasić, and few others.
History of Bosnian diplomacy in its earliest stage has not yet been adequately researched and presented so there are series of questions that are waiting to be studied. For this reason, the organizers have emphasized that they will be satisfied if this conference will be a stimulus for further research.
The wife of the deceased diplomat, Mrs. Minka Ljubijankić also participated in the conference, and short film about Dr. Irfan Ljubijankić was shown, as well as exhibition of photographs of meetings with the highest officials from around the world.
