“The European Union will continue to support the Bosnian partners and civil society in promoting and protecting children’s rights”, said Natalia Dianiskova, Head of the Operations Section for the Social Development, Civil Society and Cross Border Cooperation at the Delegation of the European Union to Bosnia and Herzegovina and added: “It’s one of the smaller projects of the European Union, but it’s very important because it’s supposed to increase the role of children and their rights in the society, to protect them further and to make sure that their rights are protected at all levels in Bosnia and Herzegovina…”

 The project “Children’s Role for a Strong Civil Society” aimed at promoting the development of a more dynamic civil society, which actively participates in the public debate on human rights and social inclusion, and a child-tailored justice system in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
