Suggested List of Issues Relating to Domestic Violence, 74th Session of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (Pre-Sessional Working Group)

Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is composed of two entities, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republic of Srpska (RS), and one self-governing district, District Brcko. The two entities are highly autonomous. Each has its own constitution, judicial systems, and legislatures. The national legislature has authority over limited issues, and most legislative functions occur at the entity level.
