Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate and understand the current political situation in Bosnia and why it not has been improving. The failed democratic process and the country's current continuing problems are studied through factors that deal with the country's ethnic diversity and the problematic constitution after the Bosnian war which separates the country. In this paper, a case study is used as the method, and by applying a reconciliation theory about the reconciliation process in Bosnia, the analysis shows that politicians, religious leaders and citizens show large cooperation problems and are holding back a democratic development in the country. Constitutional democracy is also used as theory, and the analysis in this study shows that this form of democracy can work in Bosnia after a reconciliation process. The conclusion of this study means that reconciliation is very important and must be implemented because no democratic improvement can be done without it. If there is no reconciliation in future Bosnia, it is more likely that the country will separate in two or more parts and that Bosnia as a state will not survive when the conflicts between the different ethnic groups in the country is so great.
