The Dayton case-study is significant for two reasons. First, because it addresses the importance of international leadership in contemporary security challenges, i.e. in peace support operations, and second because it provides an account of what the implementation of Dayton means for the state which claims the role of global leadership. The main question to be discussed therefore is why the Unites States could not refrain from leading the endeavours towards a comprehensive implementation of Dayton?
