Bosnia and Hercegovina (BiH) have not been progressing over the past ten years, despite EU involvement. On the contrary, BiH has declined on regulatory quality, on judicial independence, (despite being already at quite a low level) and on administrative burden other than import-export related. Media (imperfect, but plural) and digital citizens keep up a consistent demand for better governance, but the ethnic division of the society mirrored in the particularistic organization of the state and government prevents both accountability and government effectiveness.
