Using the perspective of best comparative practice, the report offers a comprehensive analysis of the current legal framework regulating the status of non-governmental organizations in court proceedings related to the protection against discrimination in BiH, and points to the necessary amendments that would improve the relevant legislation. In addition, the report also discusses key practical obstacles for active involvement of NGOs in anti-discrimination cases, and identifies key steps that would lead to the creation of a more stimulating environment for a more significant involvement of NGOs in this area.

The analysis is prepared as part of the project “A Comprehensive Overview of the Anti-Discrimination Framework and Practice in BiH in Comparative Perspective,” implemented by Analitika. This project represents the policy segment of the “Anti-Discrimination Program,” coordinated and funded by the Open Society Fund Bosnia and Herzegovina.
