This Bosnian organ (House of Peoples) was established in 1995, through the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in November 1995, which was later (on December 14) signed in Paris, France.
The House of Peoples of BiH has 15 members equally distributed among the three ethnic groups in Bosnia: 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. This arrangement is unpopular in Bosnia among the Bosniaks , but attempts to change it would have to be approved by the chamber itself.
