UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination and violence against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. UN Women supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programs and services needed to implement these standards.
Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has made some progress in creating preconditions for achieving gender equality by adopting relevant legislative and policy framework. However, women remain seriously under-represented in the country’s political institutions. In order to create a genuinely encouraging environment work on several fronts is required, including a sharper focus on implementation of all policy instruments and a corresponding shift of paradigm from equality of rights to equality of results, promotion of institutional processes that ensure women’s equal participation in political parties and parliament and consistent efforts to capacitate and include women in BiH in decision-making processes across board.
During the last general elections in 2014 political parties were obliged to observe candidate lists gender quotas stipulated by the Elections Law but this has not resulted in greater numbers in women elected. Women are under-represented in the legislative power at all levels, at 17.1%, which is in an obvious breach of the Gender Equality Law. Similarly, in the executive bodies, out of 152 ministerial positions in BiH at all levels, there are only 23 women. Only two women are represented at the Council of Ministers, and the members of tripartite BiH Presidency are (and always have been) men. Of the 183 registered political parties in BiH, not a single one is headed by a woman. The discrepancy between the lists and mandates, and the praxis of side-lining women by the political parties in which they should become visible and responsible in political life has caused much damage and discouraged women from engaging actively in politics . At local level, the numbers of women elected are even lower. After the 2016 local elections, the number of women candidates stood at only 6.8%, which represented a decrease from previous elections in 2012
This project is funded by the Government of Sweden and implemented by UNDP BiH and UN Women BiH, in partnership with local governments (Agency for Gender Equality BiH, Central Election Commission BiH, Parliamentary Assembly of BiH- Committee on Gender Equality)
The overall objective of the Women in Elections Project is to strengthen women’s leadership and participation in political life, vertically by making structural adjustments to accommodate greater numbers of women in politics, as well as horizontally by nourishing the next generation of women leaders in communities through tailored networking and capacity building initiatives and increased democratic participation and accountability. Guided by the strict observance of the highest standards of political neutrality, the project will apply the UNs Gender Equality in Elected Office approach (6 steps approach) to insure an encouraging environment for having more women elected across board, in all spheres of decision-making in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In order to create encouraging environment for this social transformation, the project activities would have to be based on the relevant data. It is therefore crucial to conduct capacity building of institutions which contribute towards a greater and more substantive role of women in political and public life in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In order to address the parliamentary strengthening step, UN Women is seeking to engage a national consultant to summarize work and key results of the Gender Equality Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH, and to define key messages to be distributed and communicated to the new members of the Committee, newly elected parliamentarians as well as to the wider public.
