Conference "How to achieve better implementation of European anti-discrimination standards in BiH?"

Address:

Hotel Bristol, Sala Sarajevo 1

 

With the recent amendments to the Law on Prohibition of Discrimination, the Law is now largely harmonized with European anti-discrimination standards. Nevertheless, the judges and courts are also expected to take into account the relevant jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights - as the key authority in determining the nature and content of fundamental rights in Europe - in the application of the mentioned Law and the procedures in specific cases. This is not an easy task even in less complex legal systems.

Center for Social Research - Analitika is organizing the conference “How to achieve better implementation of European anti-discrimination standards in BiH?”, which will be held on 19th of April 2017, from 10:30 to 15:00, at Hotel Bristol in Sarajevo.

The aim of this event is to reflect on the current jurisprudence in BiH, map the key challenges and thematise possible steps towards a more consistent application of European legal standards and incorporation of the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights in the court proceedings in Bosnia and Herzegovina in this field.
