The problem is corruption, not ethnicity

by Cristian Florescu

Bosnia and Herzegovina does not have a problem with ethnicity, but with systemic corruption and the lack of credibility of political actors, which affect the functioning of state institutions, US Western Balkans special envoy Gabriel Escobar told Croatian news agency Hina in an interview, writes

Unlike some Western European politicians who advocate abandoning ethnic criteria, such as German Social Democrats, the US special envoy stressed that the constitutional setup with the three constituent peoples remains the foundation of the US policy in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“We must have a vibrant and politically active Croat population in BiH. Without it, Dayton will not succeed, so our aim is to ensure that they feel secure, comfortable and economically sustainable in BiH”, the US envoy said.
