Bosnia and Herzegovina

Since 1995, the international community has invested an enormous amount of resources and effort to help Bosnia and Herzegovina develop into a modern multi-ethnic democratic state. And with good reason. The lack of an appropriate response to the vicious war fought between 1992 and 1995 proved humiliating for the international community, Europe in particular, and disastrous for the people of the region.

ESI has been active in Bosnia since 1999, producing over 20 reports and discussion papers, more than for any other country we have covered. We have followed the development of post-war power structures, analysed economic challenges, developed a proposal for constitutional change, and critically examined the question of international power and its limits. We have also followed Bosnia's EU accession process and the challenges ahead.
