Complicated constitution is Bosnia’s biggest challenge

The Dayton Peace Agreement of 1995 brought an end to the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It also gave Bosnia a very complicated constitution and a control system that is still seriously hampering the country’s progress. The state is weak and tensions between different parts of the country are delaying necessary reforms.

New agreement

Support to waste management improvements

Sweden has signed grant agreements with five municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina for support to waste management improvements worth a total of 1,1 Million Euros. The goal is to improve and increase the number of households that will have access to organized collection of waste and that the collected waste will be disposed off at regional sanitary landfills.

EU-integration a distant but steady goal

The Swedish presence in Bosnia and Herzegovina is a result of a longstanding engagement in the country and in the region. Initially the focus was on assisting Bosnia and Herzegovina to rebuild after the war but over time it has shifted more towards supporting Bosnia and Herzegovina’s ambitions to eventually become a member of the European Union. This is common goal and seen as a guarantee for stability and peace.
