- Bosnia's Next Five Years: Dayton and Beyond
Last weekend's strong showing by nationalist parties in Bosnia's elections
has exposed weaknesses in the Dayton accords. Though critical, these
weaknesses are not fatal - either to Bosnia or to the Accords. U.S.

War Criminals in Bosnia's Republika Srpska: Who are the People in Your
ICG's latest report "War Criminals in Bosnia's Republika Srpska: Who are
the People in Your Neighbourhood?" names 75 individuals in eighteen
Republika Srpska municipalities and the Brcko District allegedly involved
between 1992 and 1995 in war crimes like mass murder, ethnic cleansing and
mass rape. It shows most of them still occupying positions of power in the
police force and military, holding public office, exercising power through
the legal or illegal economy, or influencing politics from behind the
scenes - and working against the Dayton Peace Agreement. Among key policy
recommendations, the report calls for the banning of the Serbian Democratic
Party (SDS), founded by indicted war criminal Radovan Karadzic, from
Bosnia's 11 November elections - and, failing that, maintaining
post-election pressure by setting and enforcing tough performance
benchmarks. The report also calls for more robust action by NATO's SFOR to
arrest indicted war crimes suspects, as well as increased financial support
to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in
The Hague to enable it to increase its case load, conduct sittings in
Bosnia and better publicise its proceedings.
