When asked what they think of the country’s European path, the most important political actors in Bosnia and Herzegovina will answer that they support full membership in the European Union. On the other hand, the results in meeting the 14 priorities of the Commission’s Opinion on the Application of Bosnia and Herzegovina for the EU membership and the slowed down reform processes suggest that this support is mostly nominal. Same as in previous years, the Initiative for Monitoring the European Integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina1 has prepared a report that looks at the country’s reform processes and progress through the prism of civil society. The publication 2021 Alternative Report on Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Progress on the Road to the European Union Membership: Political Criteria follows the structure of the European Commission’s 2021 Report on Bosnia and Herzegovina in parts related to political criteria. The authors addressed the topics by referring to the expertise of the organizations they represent.
This publication is the result of the work of civil society organizations within the Initiative for Monitoring the European Integration of BiH and associates outside this coalition. 42 authors from 21 organizations participated in the preparation of this report.
