BIRN BiH has become a member of the Initiative for Monitoring the European Integration of BiH and joined efforts intended to monitor reforms and provide an overview of the implementation of the policies, laws and standards of the European Union, focusing on the issues of democratisation, the rule of law, human rights and the rights of minorities.
The Initiative focuses on monitoring, documenting, reporting, research, members’ capacity building, advocacy, promotion and education.
The Initiative is seen as an important factor in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s European integration process. It plays an active role in creating policies that contribute to the democratic process and the rule of law.
Civil society organisations involved in the work of the Initiative share values based on human rights, the rule of law, equality and democracy.
The Initiative’s work is coordinated by the Sarajevo Open Center.
