Flyer on violence in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Authors/editor(s): Roma Women Association "Better Future" Bosnia and Herzegovina

Research shows that women belonging to marginalized groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina, such as Roma, often do not recognize different forms of violence and are not informed about how to protect themselves, which leads to their increased vulnerability. This publication refers to the Istanbul Convention to define domestic violence and intimate partner violence, raise awareness on different forms of violence and present ways to recognize and report it. It is written in one of the country's official languages and a Romani language in order to increase accessibility of information.
