Bosnia & Herzegovina: Dayton Accords Discrimination Case

Neretva River discusses a case brought before the European Court for Human Rights: “Sarajevo's Jewish community, led by Jakob Finci, is arguing that the Dayton Accords are discriminatory as they de facto bar from high public office members of minority communities that happen not to fit nicely into ‘Croat,’ ‘Muslim’ or ‘Serb’ categories. Are Croats, Muslims and Serbs in BiH more equal than for example Roma? Have the Dayton Accords institutionalized discrimination against non-Croat, non-Muslim and non-Serb minority communities?”
