State Capture of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Judiciary and Public Prosecution: What Can Be Done?

This policy paper, based on a study published in January 2021, looks at the role of judges and public prosecutors in Bosnia and Hercegovina, and how to improve their selection, protection, sanctioning, promotion, financing, and incentives to deal with complex and high-profile cases. It also suggests much needed improvements to systems for disclosing assets and assigning cases and looks to the judiciary itself for greater transparency and prosecutorial discretion.
