In February 1996, ICG began a major project in support of the international effort to implement the Dayton Peace Agreement in Bosnia.
A team of senior political analysts is based at the ICG office in Sarajevo. Their role is to gather information and advise on progress towards the implementation of the peace agreement, pointing out problems and sources of tension and further conflict, and formulating recommendations as appropriate.
ICG's most recent reports on Bosnia are:
Bosnia's Refugee Logjam Breaks: Is the International Community Ready? (31 May 2000), a close look at the extent and character of this year's refugee returns, of crucial importance to the establishment of a multiethnic society in the country and the success of the Dayton peace process;
Bosnia's Municipal Elections 2000: Winners and Losers (28 April 2000), an attempt to clarify what at first sight was a confusing mixture of electoral results, examining the significance of voting patterns in every part of Bosnia and drawing lessons for the international community's continuing mission in the country; and
Reunifying Mostar: Opportunities for Progress (19 April 2000), a fresh assessment of the situation in Mostar, the ethnically-divided city that serves unofficially as the capital of Herzeg-Bosna, the illegal Croat third entity within Bosnia.
