BiH2.0 PERCEPCIJE PERCEPTIONS

UVOD

Studije za jugoistočnu Evropu u Oxfordu (SEESOX), katedra za politiku i međunarodne odnose (DPIR) u Oxfordu, LSEE-istraživanje o jugoistočnoj Evropi na London School of Economics organizovali su 30. januara 2015. radionicu vodećih međunarodnih kreatora politike i analitičara čiji je fokus bila Bosna i Hercegovina (u daljem tekstu BiH ili Bosna). Namjera radionice bila je da napravi inventuru sadašnjeg političkog, ekonomskog i stanja u društvu; da identifikuje glavne izazove, uključujući moguće zastoje i one koji ometaju; i predloži moguće puteve naprijed.Širi cilj bio je da se prodiskutuje o tome kako poboljšati efikasnost međunarodnog angažovanja u BiH.

Sponzori radionice bili su Odjeljenje za javnu diplomatiju u NATO-u, London School of Economics, Centar za međunarodne studije na Univerzitetu Oxford, Foreign and Commonwealth Office i St Antony’s College, Oxford.

Jednodnevna radionica bila je podijeljena na četiri panela: 1) sadašnja situacija, 2) politička, bezbjedonosna i ustavna pitanja; 3) ekonomski razvoj; 4) društveni odnosi. Svjesni ozbiljnosti izazova s kojima se suočava BiH, učesnici su naglasili potrebu da zadrže pozitivan uvid s obzirom na neke dosadašnje uspjehe (suviše često zasjenjeni neuspjesima), zadržavajući odlučnost i stvarajući novi momentum da se reaktivira bosansko društvo. Učesnici su ukazali da izgled za pozitivnu promjenu u BiH leži u podnacionalnom nivou i unutar civilnog sektora, koji treba ohrabriti, podržati i ojačati.

Ovaj izvještaj nema za cilj da bude opsežan ili da obuhvati sva pitanja koja se tiču BiH. On, prije svega, nudi snimak onog o čemu se raspravljalo tokom radionice.Završava se s nizom preporuka.

Napomena: Individualne izjave ne pripisuju se učesnicima pošto je radionica vođena prema Chatam House Rule kako bi se potakla otvorena i slobodna rasprava.

INTRODUCTION

South East European Studies at Oxford (SEESOX), the Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR) at Oxford, and LSEE-Research on South East Europe at the London School of Economics organized a workshop of leading international policy makers and analysts on 30 January 2015 with a focus on Bosnia and Herzegovina (henceforth BiH or Bosnia). The purpose of the workshop was to take stock of the current political, economic, and social situation; identify the main challenges, including the potential deadlocks and spoilers; and suggest possible ways forward. The broader aim was to discuss how to enhance the effectiveness of international engagement in BiH.

The Workshop was sponsored by the Public Diplomacy Division of NATO, the London School of Economics, the Centre for International Studies at the University of Oxford, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and St Antony’s College, Oxford.

The day-long workshop was divided into four panels: 1) the current situation; 2) political, security, and constitutional issues; 3) economic development; and 4) social relations. Cognizant of the severity of the challenges facing BiH, participants emphasized the need to maintain a positive outlook given some successes to date (all too often overshadowed by failures), while keeping a sense of purpose and creating a new momentum to re-activate Bosnian society. Participants pointed to the prospects for positive change in BiH residing at the subnational level and among the civil sector, which needs to be encouraged, supported, and empowered.

This report does not aim to be comprehensive, or to cover all of the issues that confront BiH. Rather, it provides a snapshot of what was discussed on the day during the workshop. It ends with a set of recommendations.

Note: Individual statements are not attributed to the participants as the workshop ran under Chatham House Rule in order to encourage a frank and free discussion.
