New online platform ‘Mapiraj.ba’ will integrate all cases of violation of human rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The platform offers online tools for systematic monitoring and public presentation of human rights violations against journalists and all other citizens in Bosnia and Herzegovina, especially vulnerable and marginalized groups.
Project was implemented by the Association ‘BH Journalists’, the European Federation of Journalists and the ‘ProEduca’ educational center, with the financial support of the European Union.
Secretary-General of the Association ‘BH Journalists’ Borka Rudic said that the platform was presented at the best possible moment - when public in Bosnia and Herzegovina is focused on the country’s first Pride Parade, and LGBTIQ community members’ calls for protection of their human rights.
“This example shows us how important it is to have the media, government institutions and civil society united in defense of human rights. It is necessary to understand the importance of the fundamental protection of human rights, not just look at those things from one’s own point of view, or from the standpoint of community or the organization we are working for”, explained Rudic.
