Authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina show little interest in addressing long-standing human rights problems in the country. Authorities fail to adequately tackle discrimination and protect women and LGBT people from violence. Asylum seekers lack adequate shelter and protection, and pushbacks to Bosnia and Herzegovina exacerbate the poor situation for migrants. Over a decade since provisions in the constitution were ruled discriminatory by Europe’s top human rights court, they have yet to be changed. Media professionals face interference in their work. War crimes prosecutions, including for conflict related sexual violence, move at a slow pace.
