About this book

This book is the first to provide a comprehensive and systematic analysis of the foreign policy of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a post-conflict country with an active agency in international affairs. Bridging academic and policy debates, the book summarizes and further examines the first twenty-five years of BiH’s foreign policy following the country’s independence from Yugoslavia in 1992. Topics covered include conflict and post-conflict periods, Euro-Atlantic integration, political affairs on both local and regional levels, integration with a variety of international organizations and actors, neighboring states, bilateral relations with relevant other states including the United States, Russia, selected EU countries, and Turkey, as well as BiH’s diaspora. The book highlights that despite their apparent weakness, post-conflict states have agency to carry out foreign policy goals and engage with the international sphere, including in geopolitics, and thus provides a novel insight into weak states and their role in international politics.

Reviews

“Contrary to many other studies, this volume does not consider BiH as a mere object of inquiry but rather as an active subject in international relations. The volume will have wide influence on scholars and practitioners alike interested in BiH’s foreign policy governance.” (Nenad Stojanović, University of Geneva, Switzerland)

“The confirmation of modern statehood of BiH since 1992 finds an expression in its foreign and security policy. The eleven chapters are testimony to the agency that institutions and actors of BiH’s external relations have developed and maintained against many odds. Yet, the limitations of actions for the country are manifold and how Bosnian foreign policy will evolve with a weakening perspective of European integration has become the new challenge. The book helps to understand how the country, while benefitting from international assistance and intervention, has never ceased to be an actor and shaper of foreign policy worldwide.” (Tobias Flessenkemper, Centre international de formation européenne, Nice, France)

“Finally! This volume offers a clear, brave formulation of Bosnian foreign policy that demonstrates transformative reforms, the path to Council of Europe membership, and further Euroatlantic integration. Using concrete examples, the authors demonstrate there are active, creative foreign policy processes within a weak state and extremely complex political circumstances. It is a timely contribution as BiH moves towards NATO and EU membership.” (Zlatko Lagumdžija, former BiH Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Chairman of the Council of Ministers)
