This study aims to analyse the negotiated outcomes of the Dayton Peace Agreement. For this purpose, the study examines three main issues of the agreement, namely the territorial issue, the constitutional issue and the issue of Sarajevo, in terms of their distributive and integrative aspects. The territorial issue has five and the constitutional issue has three sub-issues. In cases where integrative agreements are reached, the study examines the type of the mechanisms to reach integrative outcomes. These mechanisms are expanding the pie, nonspecific compensation, logrolling, cost cutting and bridging. According to the analyses of these negotiated outcomes, this thesis reveals that among eight sub-issues and one main issue, the negotiated outcomes of five sub-issues and the one main issue are integrative. The theoretical, methodological and practical implications of the findings of the analyses are further elaborated in this study.
