Bosnia and Herzegovina | Bosnia Legal Socialization Program | 21 Jan 2022

The Final Conference of the “Legal Socialization and Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency in Bosnia” (BLSP) implemented between December 1, 2016 and January 31, 2022 and funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) was held on January 19, 2022 at the Center for Children and Youth in Grbavica, Novo Sarajevo.
Due to COVID-19 travel and gathering restrictions imposed in several Cantons of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the planned number of participants in the Center had to be kept below 50 while others watched using Zoom platform. Introductory speech by the BLSP Program Director, Dr. Nedžada Faginović was followed by a video prepared by the students from the “Fourth  Elementary School” in Mostar highlighting what they liked about the LSP. The program  continued as an interactive event with live musical intermezzos alternating with presentations given by four panels of participants from different cities and institutions (ministries, schools and police) who were involved in in the project in their capacities as Curriculum Development Team members, Teaching Teams or Trainers. A Zoom interview was conducted with Dr Nina Bosankić focusing on the goals, the highlights and the main findings of the BLSP external evaluation. The program ended with short presentation of BLSP team and a refreshment organized in the hall of the Center. The Conference was recorded in Bosnian and in English language and the recordings will be forwarded to all participants and hopefully uploaded to the program website.

TVSA used the opportunity to interview stakeholder representatives from all cantons and included those interviews in a thirty-minute TV show on the BLSP which was produced and posted on their YouTube webpage in January 2022:
