Rule of Law

Show Summary Details


This chapter describes how the international community in Bosnia weathered the political crises of 1999 and emerged more able and willing to confront obstructionism to Dayton. New policies, built around the rule of law concept, required local authorities to implement Annex 7 rights. Bosnia's entrenched ethnocracies responded with more subtle means of blocking minority returns, providing the first real test of whether Bosnia could be remade into a multiethnic state.

Keywords: Bosnia; political crises; obstructionism; Dayton; Annex 7; ethnocracies; minority returns
