St. Louis is home to an estimated 60,000 Bosnians, making it the largest population outside of Bosnia. Escaping the conflict that took place in the early 1990s in the former Yugoslavia, Bosnian refugees started to settle in St. Louis as early as 1993, and since then their numbers have consistently grown. The community has been an influential and significant contribution to the local area. This panel discusses who St. Louis Bosnians are, their characteristics and influences and the future of the community.
