In 2016, the USAID Mission in BiH tasked MEASURE-BiH with conducting the Gender Analysis for Bosnia and Herzegovina, to serve as background material for USAID/BiH in the process of preparation of the next USAID/BiH Country Development and Cooperation Strategy (CDCS).
MEASURE-BiH used the following methodology in preparing Gender Analysis: comprehensive literature review, analysis of administrative and other data, 34 interviews and meetings, and attendance at three gender equality events.
Our Gender Analysis examined the following key research questions:
The report is voluminous and covers six thematic sections: (1) Gender-Based Norms; (2) Rule of Law, Good Governance, and Political and Civic Life; (3) Inclusive Economic Development; (4) Reconciliation and Social Inclusion and Cohesion; (5) Human Security; and (6) Specific Gender Issues.
In addition to assisting USAID/BiH in developing new CDCS, this Analysis is also useful to broader audience, as an overview of specific gender equality issues in focus in BiH, as well as yet uncharted areas of concern that require more research (e.g. the sub-sections on women, peace and security, and the role of women in countering violent extremism).
