On 25 May, the AIRE Centre and the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in cooperation with the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council and with the support of the British Embassy in Sarajevo, organised the Fourth Annual Conference of the Judicial Forum for Bosnia and Herzegovina devoted to Publicity and Transparency of the Judicial System – European Standards and Practice in BiH. 


The Judicial Forum for BiH rallies the representatives of the highest BiH courts and aims to promote the implementation of the European Convention on Human Rights, foster cooperation amongst the top courts on the continuous development of the rule of law and human rights, and facilitate BiH’s accession to the European Union.

The key conclusion from the conference was that the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council (HJPC) needs to adopt a single comprehensive communication strategy to conform access to information about the work of courts in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and to facilitate public understanding of the courts' role and their operations.
