It is the aim of this paper to investigate the complex system of the distribution of competences in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In order to do this, we will proceed as follows:
First, we will focus on the “twin union state” (Graf Vitzhum 2000) that Dayton created, and provide an overview of the basics of the political system.
Second, we will look at the current distribution of competences, their implementation and their actual application. By doing so, we will not only focus on the distribution of competences between different levels of government, but we will also focus on the concrete implementation of the distribution of competences in selected policy areas.
Finally, we will conclude by looking at the most recent developments in Bosnia and Herzegovina, pointing out where reforms are required and focusing on an important judgement of the European Court for Human Rights in relation to Bosnia’s political system.
