Why is the Bosnian war still continuing?

I am a Dutch Msc. student horrified by the Srebrenica Genocide, who after extensive talks, feels something similar will happen in the future

What should be researched?

In 1995, the Dayton Agreements were supposed to end the Bosnian War. Yet, this never truly happened. Currently, the country is largely divided into three groups (Croats, Bosnians & Serbians), who are gaslighted into hating the others and who are still in constant mental/physical fights. This narrative is strengthened by current politicians since they benefit in terms of money/power. I want to know why/how these politicians maintain the status quo and if they receive external support in doing so.

Who is affected?

All inhabitants/politicians of Bosnia and possibly external parties (e.g., other Balkan governments or local nationalistic organizations)i)

Why should this story be researched?

30 years ago, the Bosnians already suffered enough. They deserve to know why/how the conflict is continued, so they can really resolve it.

Where does this story take place?

Bosnia & Herzegovina, but possibly beyond the borders
