The project (or Action) aims to address important prison and police issues, especially those recorded in the CPT reports. Furthermore, it seeks to provide support to the BiH authorities in ensuring compliance with the Council of Europe standards as necessary and assist them in advancing further towards the process of stabilisation and European integration.

The expected results of the Action should enable local policy makers, primarily Ministries of Justice and Ministries of Interior on all levels, to further develop prison and police system(s) and thereby meet Bosnia and Herzegovina's international treaty obligations.

Implementation of the Action started on 1 July 2016 and will last for 24 months.
