This chapter describes how the international community developed the institutional capacity to address the daunting challenge of implementing Annex 7, which provided the right to return. Houses burning through the night were a telltale sign of ethnic cleansing during the Bosnian war. But in August 1997, almost two years after Dayton, they were a sign that the international effort to promote minority returns was in trouble. The homes belonged to Bosniaks who had tried to return to villages near the HDZ-controlled town of Jajce but were chased away by marauding gangs of Bosnian Croats, including the local HVO militia.
