Twenty-five years after the Dayton Accords were concluded, ending the Bosnian War after three years of fighting, the Catholic bishops of Bosnia and Herzegovina are deeply critical of the political and social conditions prevailing in the country.

As the bishops wrote in a joint declaration released November 19 and sent to Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), the agreement was imposed upon the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina “by the international community under the leadership of the United States” and “put an end to the war that had been raging for many years, but did not achieve lasting peace.”
