Association of Election Officials in Bosnia and Herzegovina (AEOBiH) will implement the project entitled “Accountable authorities in BiH” in the period from November 1, 2006 to October 31, 2007. The main goal of this project is to promote the accountability of elected officials, executive officeholders, and advisors and their responsibility to serve the public over their own private interests. This project will also contribute to the raising of general awareness in citizens and media representatives to better exercise their rights and responsibilities.

The AEOBiH shall engage its full capacities and expertise to materialize this goal by implementing the following outputs:

  1. Educate elected officials on cantonal and entity level on the most important provisions of the Law on conflict of interest in order to raise their awareness about the significance of adherence to basic ethical principles in conduct of public authority;
  2. Promote basic principles and implications of the BiH Law on conflict of interest and the Law on freedom of access to information by conducting educational programs for the relevant media and NGOs;
  3. Improve level of communication between media representatives, NGOs and elected officials.

During one-year project implementation, AEOBiH will hold 17 trainings for 800 officials elected at the General Elections on October 1, 2006 on BiH.

This project is implemented thanks to the funds of the British Embassy.
