What future for Bosnia and Herzegovina in Europe and the Euro-Atlantic community? [WP1137]

While Croatia has completed its accession negotiations to the EU, and Serbia substantially enhanced its international standing with the arrest and transfer to The Hague of the two remaining war crimes indictees, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is in a state of deep political paralysis that threatens to lead to its increasing regional isolation.

It was a stimulating debate that got to the key issues of the future of BiH in one session. The great thing about Wilton Park is that people feel able to talk frankly with confidence. This is very important for policy-makers. Senior politicians and diplomats have little time for engaging with many think-tanks, this conference shows Wilton Park can promote these opportunities.

David Lidington, Minister for Europe, FCO

It is really an honour to speak here at Wilton Park, and to discuss these issues with all the expertise around the table. The conference and its theme are very well-timed. This conference will be very valuable for the EU and for me personally.

Peter Sorensen, European Union Special Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina; Head, European Union Delegation to Bosnia and Herzegovina
