Meetings in Tuzla, Mostar and Sarajevo Held as Part of the "Equality for All: Civil Society Coalition Against Discrimination” Project
The meeting in Tuzla entitled "Strengthening Cooperation in the Fight against Discrimination in BiH: Current Status and Perspectives", was held on October 24, 2014, where the key stakeholders in the field of anti-discrimination presented current activities, their experiences and future plans and identified possible ways to improve cooperation between CSOs in the fight against discrimination.
This project stresses out the active role of civil society organizations in prevention and fight against discrimination in BiH. Therefore, the meeting in Mostar, held on November 28, 2014, was intended for Mostar-based CSOs, and the participants discussed current issues in fight against discrimination in the Herzegovina-Neretva Canton, with special focus on two thematic areas - discrimination in education and employment.
Law on Prohibition of Discrimination of BiH defines mobbing as a type of discrimination. Mobbing is still a significant problem in BiH, proved by the fact that the largest number of cases concerning discrimination filed to the Institution of Human Rights Ombudsman of Bosnia and Herzegovina are related to mobbing. However, fight against this type of discrimination is connected to poor implementation of the LPD framework in BiH. Thus, mobbing and the Law on Prohibition of Discrimination were the topic of the second meeting held in Sarajevo on December 16, 2014. The open discussion with key stakeholders identified some of the main obstacles and determined possible ways of cooperation and collaborative actions in fight against mobbing in BiH.
All meetings are organized within the project "Equality for All: Civil Society Coalition against Discrimination“, financed by the USAID and Open Society Fund BiH. More information about the AD program is available at: www.diskriminacija.ba.
