Bosnia-Herzegovina: From promise to reality: agenda for the international community and the new High Representative

, Index number: EUR 63/010/1997

On 30 May 1997 the Peace Implementation Council appointed Carlos Westendorp as the new High Representative. There is concern that 18 months after the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina was signed, there has been a lack of progress in its implementation. Amnesty International is calling on the new High Representative and the international community to place human rights protection at the centre of a long-term strategy to ensure the implementation of the Peace Agreement's key provisions, to put an end to impunity for war crimes, and to ensure that human rights violations are adequately monitored, reported and addressed.
