Conference description:

Ten years ago, international mediation and multilateral military pressure resulted in the conclusion of the Dayton-Paris Agreement. The accords helped to bring an end to military conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina, but ushered in a trubled and controversial period of law and shattered political institutions. The setttlement starts its second decade with mixed evaluations, with some seeing a model for the resolution of other conflicts, and other asserting the superiority of other models. This conference looks at the events of the last ten years in Bosnia-Hercegovina in comparative perspective, exploring the lessons that the Dayton Agreement have to offer to others and the potential applicability of lessons from elswhere for improving Bosnia's current institutional architecture.
