All in Bosnia

Srebrenica and Stolac, Site of Contentious Local Election in Bosnia-Herzegovina

It’s been 21 years since the signing of the Dayton Peace Accords in 1995 that signaled the end of war in Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH). And on 02 October 2012, the local and municipal elections were held, the first major election in which a generation born after the war could vote. Yet, even this new generation of voters could not make changes to the country’s entrenched ethnically based political parties.
