Project Description

Using the USAID Democracy and Governance (DG) Assessment Framework, Democracy International conducted a broad assessment of political change and democratization in Bosnia and Herzegovina and offered recommendations for a USAID strategic approach to address major barriers to the transition to and consolidation of democracy. A DI team went to Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2007 to meet with government officials, political parties, civil society groups, journalists, academics, international donors, and implementers. In addition to conducting interviews in Sarajevo, the team traveled to Mostar, Brcko, and Banja Luka. The team cited the lack of consensus and a common vision of the basic nature of the Bosnian state as the country’s fundamental issue. They called for more efforts to unify the state through better performing institutions and increased avenues for popular representation.
