Bosnia and Herzegovina

The House of Peoples of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Serbo-Croatian: Dom Naroda Bosne i Hercegovine/Дом Народа Босне и Херцеговине) is one of the two chambers of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with the other chamber being the House of Representatives of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was established through the signing of the Dayton Agreement in 1995.

It has 15 members equally distributed among the three ethnic groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina: 5 Bosniaks, 5 Serbs, and 5 Croats. The members are appointed by the parliaments of the constituent republics. Their duty is to make sure that no law is passed unless all three groups agree on it.
