Issued by

Special Rapporteur on counter-terrorism and human rights


06 January 2023

Purpose: Country visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina (13-20 January 2023)

The Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism would like to request information from interested stakeholders in preparation of her upcoming visit to Bosnia and Herzegovina which will take place from 13 to 20 January 2023.

Pursuant to her mandate established by the Human Rights Council resolution 49/10, the Special Rapporteur promotes and ensures the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms by recommending rights-compliant counter-terrorism legislation and policies; offers support, technical assistance, and expertise to States, UN entities, civil society and other relevant stakeholders; makes constructive and concrete recommendations in relation to areas where there may be room for improvement.

The Special Rapporteur is interested in legislation, policies and programmes on countering and preventing violent extremism, countering terrorism financing, the use of new technologies in the context of her mandate, the treatment of individuals arrested on charges relevant to her mandate, and on the repatriation and reintegration of individuals, including women and children from north-east Syria and Iraq. The impact of these measures on civil society is of interest, as is the question of victims of terrorism.

In accordance with the established practice of mandate-holders, the Special Rapporteur welcomes all relevant submissions that civil society organizations and other interested stakeholders may wish to transmit for her consideration in preparation of this visit, such as:

  • Recent analytical reports or surveys relating to the mandate of the Special Rapporteur
  • Information on relevant policies, programmes and legal framework
  • Priority issues/concerns and situations that warrant the attention of the Special Rapporteur
  • Suggestions on issues to examine and related locations to visit
  • Contact information for organisations and representatives to meet in different locations
