The Dayton Peace Accords are not working and are not likely to work anytime soon. Hence, a new approach in Bosnia is needed. Formal partition is an alternative solution that has always lingered in the wings. This paper compares the Dayton strategy of a unitary state with the merits of formal partition, augmented by a program of compensated resettlement. While there are practical obstacles to partition, the most profound barriers are psychological. These barriers are deeply rooted in popular perceptions of the nature of the Bosnian conflict and the moral identification of its victims and perpetrators. Not until the psychological myths of the conflict are dispelled, can the long term merits of partition and compensated resettlement be contemplated by Western politicians.
