Rape and other forms of sexual violence against women were widespread during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Successive governments have consistently failed to bring those responsible to justice and to ensure survivors' access to an effective remedy. The BiH authorities have also failed to provide survivors of sexual violence with reparation. This report documents how the BiH authorities have violated a wide range of rights of the survivors of rape and other forms of sexual violence.
