More than 13 years since the end of the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), women victims of rape and other forms of sexual violence have still not received justice. As a result of their experiences during the war, many survivors still suffer severe physical and psychological problems. In this document Amnesty International calls on the authorities to ensure that survivors of war crimes of sexual violence have access to justice and also to develop a state strategy on reparation for victims of war crimes of sexual violence.
