Bosnia and Herzegovina: The ‘Dayton’ constitutional order under threat?

The people of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) head to the polls on 7th October 2018 for what is shaping up to be the most significant election since the conclusion of the Bosnian War (1992-1995). The importance of this vote has as much to do with domestic political tensions as it does with the growing clout of foreign authoritarian regimes, especially Russia but also Turkey and others, and the waning influence of both the European Union (EU) and United States (US) in the country’s affairs.
