Announcing a New Website that shows Patterns of Human Rights Violations in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Ombudsmen of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina announce a new website which allows users to analyze complaints of human rights violations made to their offices throughout the Federation.

Users of the website at www.bihfedomb.org, can obtain reports that compare the complaint records for all Cantons, or they can select one Canton, or one Human Right, such as the Right to Life, and obtain an on-line report of the history of complaints. Reports may be made based on time of complaint, ethnicity of complainant, right violated, institution complained against, and Canton of residence or of opposing party. The site allows users to report their field of interest, and to give feedback. It is hoped that the site will help the international community to follow the development of human rights in the Federation.

The site is trilingual, and may be used in English, Bosnian, or Croatian.

The Ombudsmen were established by the Federation Constitution. The initial three Ombudsmen, who come from the three principal ethnic groups and who still serve, were selected by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and sworn in on 20 January 1995 in Sarajevo.

The site is now electronically located at Chicago Kent College of Law, which is extensively involved in legal and legal technology innovation in Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

FYI: Network Maintenance

Regular general maintenance of the network is necessary to ensure greater performance, both in terms of speed and the prevention of any serious problems. To achieve these goals, the Center for Law and Computers will periodically take down the network to perform this maintenance. We've scheduled the maintenance on a monthly basis, for only 1.5 hours on days and at times to inconvenience the least amount of users. 

Here are the dates that we will be taking the network down. On these days, the network will not be available between 5:30am and 7:00am.
