Interactions of the International Community, State Institutions, Civil Society, and Illegal Organizations
Their Impacts upon Post‐Conflict Capacity Building in the Justice System in Bosnia
This paper discusses the capacity building impact of the international community, state institutions, civil society and illegal organizations on the justice system in Bosnia and the Balkans more generally. It identifies the roles and objectives of these actors, notes some of their successes and failures, and outlines how failed capacity-building initiatives have generated an environment conducive to the proliferation of organized crime and transnational terrorism. It concludes with proposals to better coordinate capacity-building efforts and improve their effectiveness.
