Standard 3.1.2. Institutions and Mechanisms for Development of and Cooperation with Civil Society

The Advisory bord for cooperation with CSOs, composed of 7 distinguished persons from the sector, will have the mandate to discuss and advice Council of Ministers regarding all issues related to civil society and possible areas of improvements of cooperation. The engagement of members is on voluntary basis as well as any of their actions. The Ministry of Justice and Sector for legal support and development of civil society will be at their disposal in order to get all necessary information, prepare the meetings and communicate with the General Secretariat of Council of Ministers BiH.

There were more than 90 municipalities as well as 3 Cantons and District Brčko that signed the Agreement for Cooperation or Strategy for Development of Civil Society but practically, they are not in use mainly because the both sides do not recognize usefulness of such cooperation. On the other hand there is basic lack of mutual respect among the sectors, the both sides do not see any kind of benefit in cooperation except acquiring the fund at the side of CSOs and political support of wider public in cases of election. In that way the non-transparent distribution becomes very visible.
