Ten years after the end of the war, Bosnian ethnicity continues to matter and the country remains dependent on international intervention. At the same time, the country is making strides to catch up with the European Integration process. The Dayton Peace Accord, signed in 1995, successfully ended the war, but froze the ethic conflict in one of the most complex systems of government in the world. The book provides an in-depth analysis of governance in this divided post-war country, discussing power sharing, the return of refugees, electoral systems and international efforts at reforming the system of government. Bosnia has been the first of a number of international interventions in ethnically divided societies, from East Timor and Kosovo, to Afghanistan and Iraq, and can thus provide important lessons.
