The Report on the Struggle for Human Rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina presents a qualitative analysis of the current legal provisions in relation to the mentioned human rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution of BiH and international treaties, which oblige Bosnia and Herzegovina to protect them, based on the findings of the Study on Mapping Institutional Violations of Human Rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as by using information from open sources such as: reports of the Institution of Human Rights Ombudsman; reports of international organizations and domestic CSOs; content of scientific and professional works; journalistic texts; conversations with representatives of authorities, etc.
For the purposes of this Report, anonymous survey was conducted on the issue of the perception of the state of three selected human rights in BiH among representatives of the academic community and civil society organizations. Accordingly, the Report contains recommendations for ministries at all levels and recommendations for the Institution of Human Rights Ombudsman of BiH in terms of guidelines for improving human rights protection policies.
