The second critical juncture in the development of constitutional reform in Bosnia took place in mid-December, when the international community stepped up pressure on the parties. Two critical moments were relevant in this phase. The first one involved the decision of the US government to take charge of the negotiations on December 12 (with the official support of the United Kingdom as the Chair of the EU rotating presidency). The second decisive moment took place after the collapse of multilateral negotiations on January 17, after which constitutional negotiations were held behind closed doors at the US ambassador’s residence. It is within this context that a final agreement was reached in March 2006 by six out of the eight party leaders that started the negotiations, specifically the leaders of the SDA, SDP, SDS, PDP, SNSD, and HDZ.
