Abstract [en]

Abstract: The aim of this study is to analyze the effects of “Law on Gender Equality” in Bosnia and Herzegovina and if the formal rights are in accordance with the actual rights for women’s access to politics. The aim is carried out by an analysis of the effects of “Law on Gender Equality” from the perspective of the four leading parties’ declarations, since elections in 2002.

Furthermore the aim is reached by placing women’s formal and actual rights, in area of access to politics, in relation to statistics which confirm the under-representation of women at national level in Bosnia. The method used is qualitative text analysis and main material is taken from documents, parties’ declarations, statistics and literature.

The results of the study prove that women are less represented in the national politics in comparison with men. The result also verifies that the political parties, in most cases, are keen to talk about women’s rights but not to take real actions to solve the problems of the under-representation of women in Bosnian politics. Another important result is that there have been positive effects of “Law on Gender Equality” on women’s access to the political sphere, which also is a vital part of the country’s future development.
