Date : 24 October 2017
UN Women, together with UNFPA, UNDP and IOM, recently published a research report about the socio-economic obstacles faced by conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) survivors in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). The aim of the study is to compare the international standards in the enjoyment of social and economic rights for CRSV survivors, analyze the implementation of domestic legislation on social and economic rights of CRSV survivors, depict the attitudes and behaviours of CRSV survivors, analyze the services provided by local institutions in selected locations, and collect and analyze data from civil society organizations about the provision of services to CRSV survivors in BiH.
The research findings should provide necessary evidence which can be used to advocate for the development of relevant policies and programmes for closing existing gaps in the accessibility and quality of services provided to CRSV survivors in BiH.
The report was developed in the framework of the "Seeking Care, Support and Justice for Survivors of Conflict Related Sexual Violence In Bosnia and Herzegovina" UN Joint Programme, implemented by IOM, UNDP, UNFPA, and UN Women and funded by the Government of the United Kingdom, the UN Action against Sexual Violence in Conflict and the Government of Canada.
