This chapter examines the Bosnian consociational arrangement. It begins with a background on the war in Bosnia and the negotiations and signing of the 1995 Dayton Peace Agreement, which formally ended the conflict. It then turns to the key consociational aspects of the Constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Next, it considers Bosnia's European commitments, including its ratification of the European Convention on Human Rights and the stabilization and association agreement with the European Union, and its attempts to honour these commitments. The chapter concludes with a discussion of extensive external involvement in both the genesis and operation of Bosnia's constitutional arrangements.

Keywords:   Bosnia and Herzegovina, constitution, 1995 Dayton peace agreement, consociational arrangement
