Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina has reported hate crime data to ODIHR. The three criminal codes applicable in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska, and in Brčko District BiH contain identical or very similar hate crime provisions. These provisions include a definition of a hate crime, penalty enhancements for specific offences and a mandatory general penalty enhancement for offences committed out of hatred. Hate crime data are provided by the Ministry of Interior but an institutional system for recording and data collection has not been established. Victimization surveys have not been conducted.
No information is available.
ODIHR observes that Bosnia and Herzegovina has not reported hate crime data disaggregated by bias motivation to ODIHR.
