Prevalence and characteristics of violence against women in BiH
13 June 2013
The first of its kind, this study explores the prevalence of private and community forms of violence against women in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where partner and domestic violence cases have long been viewed as a private family matter and many times remain unreported.
Based on a survey by the Gender Equality Agency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Entity Gender Centres, together with Institutes for Statistics and supported by the UNFPA and the UN WOMEN, this study is important to the implementation of the Gender Action Plan of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a five-year strategic document in the field of gender equality.
