Bosnia-Herzegovina: righting the wrongs: recommendations regarding return of refugees and displaced people for 1998

As the authorities in Bosnia-Herzegovina and governments of countries which host refugees from Bosnia-Herzegovina meet to discuss plans for repatriation and return of refugees and displaced people in 1998, it is necessary also to evaluate the experiences of 1997. The questions in such an evaluation cannot only focus on why fewer than expected people repatriated to Bosnia-Herzegovina and what can be done to encourage more returns. It is also necessary to consider whether those who have repatriated to the country and/or those who returned to their own homes are safe, and whether the process has contributed to ensuring that everyone in Bosnia-Herzegovina is safe and that their human rights are, and will be, respected.
