This map layer shows where the Dayton Peace Agreement has been ratified and co-signed.
The Dayton Peace Agreement (officially designated as the General Framework Agreement for Peace for Bosnia and Herzegovina - GFAP) was adopted in 1995 between the parties fighting in the Bosnia War (1992-1995): Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia. The peace agreement set the terms for the independence and delineation of the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina and determined its political divisions and structures of government. It was concluded under the aegis of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and through mediation by the United States. It can be regarded as a significant example of a regional confidence-building and arms control arrangement because it succeeded in considerably reducing weapon stockpiles and troop numbers by the parties to the conflict.
