OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina
Rule of law
The Mission monitors trials involving war crimes, hate crimes, and human trafficking, and documents the work of the judiciary. It also administers the War Crimes Processing Project, an initiative to help the country’s justice sector expedite the fair and effective processing of war crimes cases. To help tackle hate crimes, the Mission monitors and reports on such cases, runs training programmes for the judiciary, and provides training for civic and governmental bodies aimed at building their capacities to appropriately respond to incidents. An overarching priority to further the rule of law is the reform of the justice sector, as well as institutional and legislative reform.
