Summary/Abstract: The subject of this paper is to emphasize the activities of international organizations, in particular NATO, and their effectiveness in the process of preserving peace and security-building, as well as the effect of the failures of peacekeeping operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Considering the fact that the needs of the implementation of the Dayton Peace Accords called for the engagement of NATO, the OSCE and other regional organizations, it is necessary to consider the overall objective of conducting peacekeeping operations in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and to elaborate how the international actors behaved in the process of sustaining peace and peacekeeping in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Experiential knowledge of NATO as a military-political bloc, which is the backbone of modern European security and is engaged in the case of Bosnia and Herzegovina, will contribute to a better understanding of the complexity of overall international relations. Research facts about the Euro-Atlantic Partnership and NATO through their historical development, contribution and significance are of high importance for determination of real values and benefits that they stand for and were implemented in the Member States in order to examine the real need of approaching Bosnia and Herzegovina to them. Analyzing the immediate post-conflict situation and the current situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and NATO, it is necessary to examine the place of Bosnia and Herzegovina in them and the benefits that our country will gain by being the part of such powerful military-political bloc.
