Bosnia and Herzegovina: Workshop on Public Relations and Transparency

On June 7, 2016, USAID’s Justice Activity in Bosnia and Herzegovina Project, in cooperation with the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina, organized a workshop in Sarajevo on criteria for monitoring and evaluating the capacity of prosecutors' offices in public relations and transparency. Dr. Sanin Dzidic, director of Monitoring and Evaluation of USAID’s Justice Activity Project, led the workshop. Participants discussed the qualitative aspects of the relationship between prosecutors’ offices and the public. On the basis of this and other workshops to follow, qualitative and quantitative indicators in relation to transparency and public relations will be formulated, and submitted to the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina for adoption.

The USAID Justice Project is a five-year rule of law initiative designed to help Bosnia and Herzegovina justice sector institutions effectively combat government corruption and prosecute serious crime cases to ensure the integrity of public institutions.  The USAID Justice Project is implemented by Millennium DPI in partnership with NCSC.
