OHCHR in Bosnia and Herzegovina


In line with the 2006-2007 Strategic Management Plan OHCHR closed its Office in Bosnia and Herzegovina in June 2007. OHCHR had opened its office in 1994 initially to service the mandate of the Special Rapporteur appointed by the Commission on Human Rights. Until the closure the Office operated according to the mandate established for it in the 1995 Dayton General Framework Agreement for Peace (GFAP). Most recently, the office focused on five areas of action, namely non-discrimination and women's rights; transitional justice; anti-trafficking; treaty body reporting; and protection of economic and social rights of vulnerable groups.
