Rule of Law and the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms

Training for law students in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Regional training on rule of law and ECHR procedure for students in Bosnia and Herzegovina


On March 27, 2018 KAS Rule of Law Programme South East Europe and the Bosnian ”Centre for Media Law“ organize the first in a series of trainings on the European “Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms” (ECHR). This training will be held at the Law Faculty at Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Further trainings are planned to be held in Sarajevo, Mostar and Banja Luka.

Two experts from the Centre for Media Law, Peđa Đurasović and Kristina Ćendić, will train the students on rules and how to submit applications before the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). Additionally, the students will have an opportunity to discuss the case of "Hadžimejlić and Others versus Bosnia and Herzegovina" and to simulate an oral hearing before the chamber of ECtHR, during a moot court, taking place at the end of the training.

There is a pressing need for students to learn about the European Convention on Human Rights and its mechanisms in combination with the presentation of case-law issues of the European Court of Human Rights, with a special emphasize on the cases affecting the BiH and its legislation.
