Caring for Carers: an Analysis of Informal Care Policies in Bosnia and Herzegovina

2016

As the formal long-term care system in Bosnia and Herzegovina is underdeveloped and plagued with many shortcomings, primarily manifested in the form of limited access to services and insufficient allowances for the users, the burden of caring for care-dependent persons has been shifted for the most part into the sphere of informal care. Yet informal carers are completely neglected in long-term care policies and receive no support – whether in the form of services or financial compensation – to make the task of providing care easier or improve the informal carers’ well-being.

Court as a Policy-Maker?: The Role and Effects of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Democratic Transition and Consolidation

Nedim Kulenović
2016

In line with contemporary theories on the position and role of the constitutional adjudication in a democratic system, this study offers a comprehensive analysis of the role and performance of the Constitutional Court of BiH in the last twenty years. Numerous existing evaluations and analyses, being rather cursory and partial, have almost completely neglected the issue of the quality of work and decisions of this Court. Thus, we believe that the perspective provided by this study will contribute to a fuller understanding of the role of Constitutional Court in the constitutional and political system of BiH, as well as bring more arguments in the discussions on the present and the future of this immensely important institution in the context of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
