Bosna and Herzegovina country paper
This paper was written in the frame of the project “Western Balkan CSOs for Global Development “, financed by the Austrian Development Cooperation. The project is aimed to raise capacities of Western Balkans’ civil society organization to engage in political dialogue, advocacy and awareness raising of global development issues. Strong and vibrant civil society is crucial for addressing global justice, solidarity and international development; and meaningful involvement of the civil society in processes for the creation of national development policies will be especially important. Involvement of the civil society in development processes is even more important for countries which aspire to become EU members since they are obliged to set up its international development cooperation and humanitarian aid strategies and adopt EU acquis. Bosnia and Herzegovina, being a potential candidate country and an aspirant for becoming an EU member will also have to do so.
