Background

The UN Special Rapporteur on the rights to freedom of assembly and of association will conduct a country visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina to assess the situation and the compliance of the rights mentioned above, including the legal framework in place, the progresses, challenges and opportunities for the promotion of these rights.

Specifically, he will also pay attention to a number of issues such as: procedural and practical measures for holding peaceful assemblies/protests, facilitation of peaceful assemblies by law enforcement officials, human rights monitoring during peaceful assemblies, situation of labour unions, financing of political campaigns, situation of vulnerable groups, impact of counter-terrorism measures on the enjoyments on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association, among others.

For that, he will hold discussions with government officials, civil society actors, journalists, lawyers and bar associations, trade unions, and any other actors relevant for that matter.
