Abstract [en]

The Democratic Definition in Bosnia and Herzegovina is a modest contribution to the vast research field concerning different democratic conceptualisations. With the presupposition that the term ‘democracy’ is defined differently across populations as a result of the specific environments existing in each country, this paper aims to identify whether the political system of socialistic Yugoslavia influenced its citizens and their democratic conceptualisation. Through ten interviews conducted in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the spring of 2019, respondents with the first-hand experience from Yugoslavia and the peace-bringing Dayton Agreement gave their perspective of democracy. By the strength of qualitative method and the thoughts and opinions of the interviewees, the thesis is able to present an insight into how the aforementioned events have affected their democratic definition. An unexpected dimension in the matter of democratic conceptualisation was observable through this small minor field study when the descriptions were not only articulated through a political or scholarly perspective, but also defined merely through personal perception.
