From ownership to imposition: the process of creating a legally accountable Bosnian judiciary
2012 (English)In: Corruption and post-conflict peacebuilding: selling the peace? / [ed] Christine S. Cheng & Dominik Zaum, London: Routledge , 2012, 1, 114-125 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Corruption has been recognized as a key challenge to post-conflict peacebuilding efforts, undermining the legitimacy and effectiveness of state institutions, and compromising key peacebuilding tasks such as disarmament and reconstruction. However, in the short run, accepting corruption might be necessary to finding a political settlement and stabilizing a post-conflict order. Our review of the debate suggests that corruption in these contexts is first and foremost a political problem and needs to be addressed as such. Anti-corruption measures, such as promoting accountability and the rule of law, need to be considered in the context of wider peacebuilding objectives.
