Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is facing its most serious political crisis since the end of the war in 1995. Due to failed electoral reform negotiations, there is a potential threat that Croat parties might boycott state institutions and block the budget from being passed. This would prevent the 2022 general elections from taking place in October. Amidst the threat of secession by the main Serb parties, this political crisis could lead toward complete institutional erosion and effective dissolution of the state, which has been propped up by international actors for the last 26 years.
