 Bosnia and Herzegovina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Dayton Agreement succeeded in ending the bloodshed in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and it institutionalized the division between the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Muslim and Croat entity - Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (51% of the territory), and the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Serb entity - Republika Srpska (49%).
On November 21, 1995, in Dayton, Ohio, presidents of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Alija Izetbegović), Croatia (Franjo Tuđman), and Serbia (Slobodan Milošević) signed a peace agreement that brought a halt to the three years of war in the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (the final agreement was signed in Paris on 14 December 1995).

 Bosnia - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about Bosnia
Bosnia-Herzegovina – kept undivided because of its ethnic and religious compound of Serbs (Orthodox Christians), Croats (Catholic Christians), and Serbo-Croat-speaking Slavs (Muslims) – became a republic within the Yugoslav Socialist Federal Republic in November 1945, after the expulsion of the remaining German forces.
This was followed up by the agreement of the foreign ministers of Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia to start negotiations on a new constitution for post-war Bosnia, which took place at the US air base at Dayton, Ohio, in November 1995.
By May 1994 22,000 UN troops were deployed in the republic, with a mandate to ‘contain’ the fighting, to airlift relief supplies into starving, isolated eastern Bosnia, to enforce the ‘no-fly zone’, and to protect UN ‘safe areas’.
