Despite progress to develop legal frameworks and policies to promote women's human rights, women in Bosnia and Herzegovina lack equal opportunity and are underrepresented in political decision-making at all legislative, executive and judicial levels. Women have been excluded from post-war reconstruction, peace and European integration negotiations. Discrimination against women continues and deepens. This Report by local NGOs provides an independent analysis of the difficulties and discrimination that women in Bosnia and Herzegovina face every day in exercising their rights.
