Naslov: Bosnia And Herzegovina And Diversity Management: The Case Of The House Of Peoples
Autori: IVAN ĆUBELA, GORDANA ILIČIĆ
Sažetak: In the case of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the authors show how the consequences of a specific institutional design can affect the legitimacy of the political system, leading to the instability of democracy and the inefficiency of the system of government. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a typical example of a plural or divided society, with strong and separate ethnic, religious, cultural and political entities, Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats. This key fact of separate political organization distinguishes Bosnian society from most modern pluralistic societies, which are heterogeneous but not plural. Therefore, constitutional needs, interests and requirements are special and different from relatively homogeneous societies. In divided societies, institutional design significantly influences a very important issue of representativeness. Thus, bicameralism as a secondary feature of federalism is a key mechanism for fragmented societies because it influences the consolidation of democracy through diversity management. This paper analyzes the role and performance of the second house in the political system of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and its representation of specifics, in this case the representation of the national interests of the three constituent peoples, Bosniak, Serb and Croat.
