Abstract [en]

Building a durable peace by means of external nationbuilding can be acumbersome and uncertain exercise. The outcome often hinges on the attitudesof the local population and elites and their willingness to endorse the process.This article scrutinises the attitudes of the recipient population and politicalelites towards different aspects of the external nationbuilding in Bosnia andHerzegovina. It addresses the problems of state identity, reconciliation anddemocratisation in an externally administered nationbuilding endeavour. Theempirical findings from Bosnia and Herzegovina are used to illustrate thedegree to which external nationbuilding can lay the infrastructure for adurable peace in the aftermath of ethnic war.
