The findings were consolidated for the three years for which monitoring was carried out in order to allow easier spotting of trends in relevant aspects of the judiciary in BiH in this area.

Themes: Judiciary and Access to Justice


Successive findings of monitoring the judicial response to corruption in BiH in 2015, 2016 and 2017 suggest certain trends and identify important challenges in the work of the judiciary in this area.
