@bear78-- I think the Dayton Accords was a combination of compromise and competition. The good part about a third party intervention, especially when the one intervening is a powerful government like the US, is that the parties to the conflict have to behave civilly and work to resolve issues.
The Dayton Accords was a compromise in the sense that everyone gave a little to reach a compromise. And I mean that literally because the Dayton Accords decided the land boundaries of Bosnia, Serbia and Croatia. But it also involved competition because the parties to the conflict had no choice but to compromise. They were basically stuck at that Air Force Base until they came to an agreement.
