This article examines the failings of the Dayton Agreement and how the formalized peace accord has perpuated conflict in an increasingly fragile region. The text goes further by seeking to apply the lessons learned from Bosnia and Herzegovina and make suggestions about how peace should be managed in post-2003 Iraq to prevent the same mistakes from occurring again. Key to this is developing a ground-level understanding of the effects of an externally-implemented peace on the populations which are left to live with them.
