In 1995 none of the political parties representing the peoples of Bosnia preferred a federal option. Yet, Bosnia became a federal state, highly decentralised and with a complex institutional architecture. This solution was imposed on them by international actors as a result of peace negotiations following the Yugoslav wars. Political parties in post-war Bosnia were not willing to identify with or accept the federation. The international community intervened taking over key decisions and so Bosnia and Herzegovina became the first state to experience a new model of federalism, namely ’imposed federalism’ and a new model of a federal state, that of the ’internationally administered federation’. By combining comparative politics, conflict analysis and international relations theory Soeren Keil offers a unique analysis of federalism in post-Dayton Bosnia and Herzegovina. By exploring this model of ’imposed federalism’ not only does this study greatly contribute to the literature on developments in Bosnia and Herzegovina it also re-evaluates comparative federalism in theory and practice. This study also offers important conclusions for similar cases, both in the Western Balkans region and the wider world, where international involvement and federalism as a method of conflict resolution in diverse societies becomes ever more prevalent and important.

About the Author:

Soeren Keil received a Ph.D. in International Relations from the University of Kent in Canterbury and is Lecturer in International Relations at Canterbury Christ Church University. His main research focuses on institutional design in post-conflict societies with a particular focus on the Western Balkans, particularly Bosnia and Herzegovina. He is especially interested in power-sharing models in divided societies, as well as forms of territorial and non-territorial autonomy for minority nations.

Review:

'Soeren Keil offers a theoretically well-grounded and empirically detailed analysis of the mal/functioning of the political process in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Required reading for anyone interested in understanding that country and the political challenges of diversity in divided societies more generally.'Stefan Wolff, University of Birmingham, UK'In countries without consensus on the state, the international community has incubated forms of federalism for immediate conflict management needs that have serious sustainability questions. Soren Kiel offers a penetrating analysis of this practice in Bosnia-Herzegovina and an argument that 'imposed federalism' is a new institutional form of our time. Those interested not only in Bosnia but in Iraq and Afghanistan should read this book.'Gerard Toal, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, USA
