Summary/Abstract: This work tends to research and define historical parameters that lead to founding Dayton B&H and conditions of its future survival as a democratic state. This question concomitantly brings to discussion the concept of consociation democracy that was theoretically shaped and practically proved by Arend Lipeheart. Its selfsustainability is especially important for the countries of the former eastern block and third world, which are most often religiously and nationally divided societies. That “circle” of countries includes BiH, whose former future is most often connected with question of (im)possibility of making a consensus as a key parameter of this model of democracy.
