Bosnia and Herzegovina took a proactive approach when it comes to the policies in the area of gender equality. But the Gender action plan is not the only source of gender equality activities. Thanks to our efforts and to the efforts of our gender focal points there is a number of public policies at all levels of government.

SPECIFIC SECTORS PUBLIC POLICES  which are coordinated by the Agency or the gender centers.include

  • Action Plan on the Implementation of Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (2010-2013)
  • Strategy to implement the Council of Europe, Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence
  • Action plan for the improvement of Status of Rural Women
  • Action plan for Gender-Responsible Budget

But there is a number of other strategies which are gender focused but which are coordinated by other institutions and not the gender machinery. :

  • Programme for Victims of Sexual Violence in Conflict and Torture (2013-2016)
  • Strategy for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings

Bellow you will find a number of these gender equality public policies and tools which are available in English.
