This is the first of three papers USIP will publish this month on Bosnia, each with a different analytical perspective on what is happening in Bosnia and what needs to be done there to prevent a return to violence. We do this in the hope that these papers will generate a fuller debate on options that might be pursued by the U.S. government (USG), Europe and Bosnians.
This first paper resulted from a policy roundtable USIP organized on April 3, 2009 for people concerned about resolving Bosnia and Herzegovina's growing tensions and unmet challenges and the policies necessary to address them. The meeting was addressed by former High Representative Paddy Ashdown, and Daniel Serwer, vice president of USIP's Center for Post-Conflict Peace and Stability Operations, and Tomás Szunyog, director of the South East and East European Department of the Czech foreign ministry, moderated two roundtable sessions.
Participants included guests from the State Department, National Security Council and Pentagon, four former U.S. ambassadors to Bosnia, several former principal deputy high representatives, the current principal deputy high representative, several former heads of mission of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Bosnia, representatives from nongovernmental organizations and academia, a former presidential envoy, congressional staffers and representatives of the European Union, its institutions, member states and missions in Bosnia. This group focused on core issues of governance reform, the roles of the European Union and the United States, and the transition from the Office of the High Representative (OHR) to the European Union special representative (EUSR).
