The process of constructing a Bosnian state grew out of the People’s Liberation Movement, but it did not end with the final liberation of the country in the spring of 1945. The Bosnian Partisans continued the process of establishing the new state, through the creation of government departments, a bureaucracy and other national, regional and local institutions. This culminated in the promulgation of a constitution for the Bosnian state at the end of 1946. These acts of state-building were interwoven with those of the wider Yugoslav federal state. The Yugoslav and Bosnian state-building processes ran parallel, each decisively influencing the form of the other. The form of the new Yugoslav state was determined by the fact that it was a union or association of its six constituent republics. Likewise, the form taken by these republics - and particularly by Bosnia, as the Yugoslav lynchpin - was determined by their membership of the union.
