December 4 – A Country Divided – Bosnia & Herzegovina's 2018 Elections

On the 7th of October, Bosnia and Herzegovina held its eighth general election since the end of the 1992-5 war. While ethnic divisions historically have been an important aspect of politics, the outcome of the elections shows a deeper divide than in a long time. Milorad Dodik, a pro-russian politician from the partly autonomous region of Republika Srpska, became the Serbian representative to the tripartite presidency. His separatist agenda and repeated calls for an independent Republika Srpska have made the future of the country look increasingly uncertain and made the international community fear that a new conflict is on the horizon. What does the election mean for Bosnia and Herzegovina?
