Summary/Abstract: “Dayton” Bosnia and Hercegovina, 20 years after the civil war finished and signing of Peace Accord, is still a deeply ethnically, politically and religiously divided country that was used in its history as a ground for experimental redesign and competition of geopolitical interests between the Great Powers once again. This paper explores the impact of those geopolitical influences upon Bosnia’s security sector’s reformist transformation and its result. Critical observation of reforms results in the security sector as one of the most important parts of broader ”experimental redesign” of the whole political system in Bosnia (that was led to unification and political centralization) didn’t show any improvement of security in this country, on the contrary. But the analysis of this process is leading research into the insight of some new tendencies in international relations and prognosticates their influence on the security system and the whole of Bosnia and Hercegovina`s future.
