Our work in Bosnia and Herzegovina aims to bridge some of the historic – and current – ethno-religious divisions in the country, bringing together civil society organisations from all parts of the state to focus on the implementation of new anti-discrimination legislation.
Our achievements to date include:
- Securing the adoption of a government regulation on monitoring and recording cases of discrimination, through sustained advocacy by the Trust and its partners.
- Providing legal assistance to more than 90 victims of discrimination and sponsoring five strategic cases, including a ground-breaking case of ethnic discrimination in employment.
- Establishing an Equality Forum with 61 member organisations representing discriminated groups from all of the country’s constituent entities.
- Providing training on the Law on Prevention of Discrimination and international standards on equality to more than 60 activists, lawyers and public officials.
