Chapter Summary

In recent years, law enforcement has become an integral part of peace support operations (PSOs). This chapter is confined to Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and examines three law-enforcement-related issues that have arisen in the post-Dayton PSO context, namely: (1) the &t;Rules of the Road&t; system, which balanced the desire for domestic war crimes trials with other priorities such as freedom of movement; (2) &t;reselection,&t; a vetting procedures for judges and prosecutors; and (3) the creation of the War Crimes Chamber in the court of BiH, which links domestic and international war crimes courts. The chapter discusses the challenges faced in post-war BiH, the solutions chosen, the success or failure of these choices and the implications of their application in other PSO contexts. PSOs will certainly continue to include law enforcement mandates. It would be useful to consider BiH experiences when designing and implementing future PSO law enforcement structures.
