ZusammenfassungThis research investigates the question of how peacebuilding is negotiated between interveners and intervened in Bosnia, which implies asking both for what actors do in peacebuilding negotiations, and what makes them successful.
It focuses on three cases of peacebuilding negotiations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, namely defense reform, police reform and the state property negotiations. To analyze these processes of negotiation, I focus on interests, resources, strategies and outcomes. I find that in all three cases, the interveners had an interest in ‘peacebuilding success’ while the Bosnian political elites had an interest in maintaining access to political authority. This meant that the interests of the interveners and Bosnian Serbs, in particular, often conflicted, as the interveners’ definition of peacebuilding success entailed centralizing political authority to the detriment of Bosnian Serb autonomy.
In negotiating those diverging interests, the interveners were often less powerful than is commonly assumed. They were at an advantage with respect to resources only in terms of economic resources. Strategies based on those, however, were often not very successful. The intervened, on the other hand, had a powerful tool of blackmail by being able to let peacebuilding fail. In sum, the interveners were successful only in defense reform, where conditions were favorable, and the interveners used them well. Somewhat favorable conditions in the state property negotiations remained unused, and in police reform, there was little chance for compromise in the first place. Considering the limited prospects of peacebuilding success, interveners and intervened often did not work towards success but colluded in avoiding failure, by postponing decisions or by reinterpreting symbolic agreements as successes.
