After last year’s successful completion of the Train the Trainer programme for the police officers of the Cantonal Ministries of Interior (MoI) and the representatives of the Police Academy of the Federation of BiH, this year every Cantonal MoI has to implement education programmes on hate crime. The mentioned education programmes should be implemented in the scope of their permanent trainings that are mandatory for each and every police officer of each MoI. Sarajevo Open Centre has advocated with every MoI in particular and made constant pressure directed towards introducing the module on hate crime into the programme of mandatory education, in which we have, to our great pleasure, succeeded.
These days we are in contact with all the Cantonal MoI’s, in order to see how things are progressing. The information we have is that some of the MoI’s have already implemented the education on hate crime, some are in the process of implementation at the moment, and the others will implement them by the end of 2017. So, in the regular and mandatory topics for educating the police officers of FBiH each Cantonal MoI has included the module on hate crime.
During the meetings, discussions on how the representatives of these institutions should deal with LGBTI people were held. There has been talk of sensitization through the education that will follow in the upcoming period for the representatives of these precise institutions through info sessions, but also through a two-day education on the human rights of LGBTI people.
The main goal of this training was to introduce the judiciary community with the promotion of anti-discrimination and criminal law and practice in the field of human rights protection with emphasize on LGBTI persons as a marginalized social group, important for their work in judicial institutions.
