Resource Type:

Bosnia & Herzegovina

LGBTI activism over the past few years has resulted in significant improvements in the institutional, legal and public policy framework for the protection of human rights of LGBTI people. Nevertheless, LGBTI people and their lives remain on the margins of the political, institutional and social mainstream.

This report is part of a sub-regional project “Being LGBTI in Eastern Europe” which is implemented by UNDP and financed by USAID. It has been developed based on several events with institutional stakeholders and civil society organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2016, conversations with representatives of civil society organizations and relevant institutions, researches and desk reviews of published literature. The report covers the developments and activities until 31 December 2016. All changes and activities after this date are not covered by the report. The report is available in English and languages of people of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian).

This report documents the presentations and discussions from the national round-table meeting held in Sarajevo on 22 June 2016. A further round-table meeting was held to validate this report on 6 December 2016, including a desk review of published literature and information gained through field visits, additional researches, official meetings and interviews held with LGBTI partner organizations, other civil society organizations and relevant state and non-state actors involved in the Being LGBTI in Eastern Europe (BLEE) project.
