Selected Aspects “(2009) and “The state, politics and society in BiH – analysis post-Dayton political system” (2011), which aimed to present a general picture of the political system of post-Dayton Bosnia and Herzegovina, the analysis of parliamentarism aims to thoroughly analyze a problem of functioning of parliamentary system in Bosnia and Herzegovina: the state, through the entity to the cantonal and municipal level, with all the problems and idiosyncrasies.

A collection of papers entitled “Parliamentarism in Bosnia and Herzegovina” was published in collaboration with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the result was a group effort of young Bosnian scientists and scholars, and the continued operation of the Sarajevo Open Centre in interdisciplinary scientific projects aimed at supporting young scientists in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the promotion of quality and objective scientific research in the field of social sciences. The book is the result of joint work by 7 authors from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina, and contains 10 articles on the theoretical assumptions of needs and ways of organizing the representative bodies of the individual parliamentary structures in B&H, and the structural and procedural issues specific to complex Bosnian parliamentary system. This publication was prepared by Saša Gavrić, executive director of the Sarajevo Open Centre and Damir Banović, Associate Scientist in the Sarajevo Open Centre. Authors of the articles are lawyers: Maja Sahadžić, Goran Marković, Enis Omerović, Aida Kreho and Nedim Kulenović, political scientists Mirna Jusić and Nermina Saračević and sociologist Zlatiborka Popov-Momčinović.
