Association for Democratic Initiatives carried out analysis of the nature and availability of free legal aid, information and consultation in the period September – December 2015. This is a second analysis which was performed based on the findings of the first report Access to Justice: Providing information, advice and free legal assistance in BiH conducted in 2013. New survey included the analysis of existing legislation and legal practices in BiH and the existing capacity of providers of free legal aid. The goal of this analysis is to detect and analyze the obstacles faced by citizens who try to exercise their rights in courts and government bodies, and gain a deeper insight into the experience with free legal aid as a mechanism that is available to those citizens who are faced with financial barriers or discrimination in the exercise of their rights. The report was published as part of the project “Triple A for Citizens: access to information, advice and active help” funded by the European Union.
