The blockage of Bosnia’s EU path was formalized at the press conference of the European Commissioner for Enlargement, Stefan Fule, in Sarajevo on February 18, after the last round of negotiations to amend the constitution in line with the European Court of Human Rights’ Sejdic-Finci ruling failed.
If the news did not get much attention at home or internationally, it was because it long time ago became clear that Bosnia’s EU accession process was stuck in the mire of the local political games.
Whether out of generosity, naivety or some other reason, Fule “ran a few more laps” over the last few months, but since Bosnia’s own leaders did not move forward, he had finally to declare defeat.
