Guide to social and health protection rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina

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

Research shows that women belonging to marginalized groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina, such as Roma, are often unable to access support services in cases of domestic violence due to their lack of information about those services and/or distrust towards service providers. They are often unaware of all the ways they can claim social rights and health protection. This publication highlights what consitutes violence and discrimination and lists all the grounds upon which women can exercise protection rights.
