Recent developments in the judicial field

July 2010

The Bosnia and Herezegovina Justice Sector Reform Strategy (2008-2012) was adopted in June 2008. Its overall objective is to create a joint framework of reform for justice sector institutions in BiH that sets out agreed priorities for the future development of the sector as a whole, as well as realistic actions for reform. It is an instrument which will ensure preconditions for further strengthening and maintaining independence, accountability, efficiency, professionalism and harmonization of the judicial system which ensures the rule of law in BiH.

The planed reforms are comprehensive. They concern, among other, the following issues: legislation regulating court proceedings (mostly civil and enforcement.), reduction of court backlogs, free legal aid issues (introduction of new legislation), accountability of judicial system (setting up a system of foreseeable timeframes in processing cases in courts), improving performance measurement system for judges and prosecutors etc.
