International military intervention has long been justified on the basis of moral judgements of the incivility of the enemy and the associated civilising potential of post-conflict reconstruction. This paper explores how international organisations have adjudicated civility in post-conflict Bosnia. Drawing on empirical reflections and post-structural modes of analysis, I argue that international agencies have projected ideas of civility in order to mask neoliberal reforms of social, political and economic life. The paper concludes by drawing attention to alternative conceptions in Bosnia of civility and the spaces in which they thrive.
