Episode: European Values vs. Bosnian Reality – Shrinking Civic Space in the Most Complicated Political System in the World
Interlocutor: Edo Kanlić – Initiative for Monitoring the European Integration of Bosnia and Herzegovina
Ever since the changes in the Criminal Code in BiH were publicly introduced, the talk on the destabilization has been out. Some claim minor inconveniences and nationalistic rivalry amongst presidency representatives, while other claiming to be living through the biggest destabilization in the past 26 years.
What is the general atmosphere in the BiH during this destabilization?
What would be the state with the civic space and rule of law in such context?
Can we consider the EU as stabilization factor in the case of BiH and how can CSO community contribute to improve the state of the country?
We covered this, and many other questions in our talk with Edo Kanlić from the EU Monitoring Initiative that is following the launch of their latest shadow report on Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Progress on the Road to the European Union Membership: Political Criteria.
