Summary/Abstract: This paper presents complex nature of political euroscepticism through comprehensive analytical context of multi-dimensional relations within the EU, mainly relations between the EU and national elements it consists of. Primary intention of the paper is to de-construct in details political euroscepticism, and reflect on it in the context of political scene in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Use of the term euroscepticism seems to be fully acceptable, almost natural considering that its significance i.e. its phenomenal determination may be derived from the current nature of relations between the EU and BiH. A methodological approach based primarily on secondary sources is used to present different factors which generate eurosceptical attitude of political parties wishing to present this phenomena as situated part of today's European political discussion on the future of the EU project.
