The Shadow Report on the Progress of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH) European Union (EU) Accession Process was developed by an in formal coalition of civil society organizations called the Initiative for Monitoring BiH’ s European Integration, which is a group of nongovernmental organizations active in BiH and interested in the EU accession process.
The initiative’s main goal is to effectively monitor the work of the government throughout its mandate and constantly inform the domestic and international public about all of the positive and negative developments in the integration process. The initiative recognizes the need for connectivity and empowerment of civil society organizations working on the promotion and protection of human rights and the promotion of EU integration at the local and national levels.
The main objective of this Shadow Report is to give a nongovernmental perspective on the level of progress achieved by BiH in the EU Accession Process with a focus on human rights. This is the first such report to be published in BiH.
The report can be read here.
