Country Profile 

Winners of USAID/BiH country-wide children’s essay contest to raise public awareness of children’s rights in BiH. The theme of the essay contest was: 

The Dayton Peace Accords brought an end to the 1992-95 war and began the transition to peace and stability in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Nearly two decades later, however, the country is still struggling to overcome the effects of conflict. Physically, the country is largely rebuilt and shows signs of economic growth. BiH signed a Stabilization and Association Agreement with the European Union in 2008, the first step in the process of becoming a candidate for EU membership. Yet development continues to be hindered by ethnic tensions and a largely dysfunctional, multi-layered governance structure geared toward safeguarding the rights of the various ethnic groups.

After massive reconstruction following the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) war, the international community continues to play a key role in supporting the country’s progress and stability. Developing jointly funded projects with other donors is a powerful way for USAID to further its development goals and multiply the impact of U.S. foreign assistance. This labor-intensive process requires dialogue and a strong understanding of a donor’s development philosophy, program modalities, and capacity. Such challenges have proved well worth the effort in BiH.
