In 2019, Association for Democratic Initiatives (ADI), in cooperation with the Association of Employers of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (UPFBiH) and the Union of Employers’ Associations of Republika Srpska (UUPRS), has produced a Self-Representation Guide for Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Self-Representation Guide for Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in Republika Srpska.
The purpose of the Guides is to help the MSMEs in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Republika Srpska to better understand court processes and gain basic knowledge necessary for self-representation at courts.
The first edition of the Guide was published in December 2019 and widely distributed among the business community. To reflect the users’ feedback as well as lessons learnt from the impact of COVID-19 pandemics, this second edition was prepared to include a chapter on administrative disputes and provide additional information on liquidation and bankruptcy proceedings.
Self-Representation Guide for Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (the Guide) was produced under the Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) Commercial Justice Technical Assistance Project implemented by the World Bank and funded with UK aid from the UK Government. The objective of the Project is to support justice institutions in implementing reforms that improve efficiency and access to commercial justice in BiH, building on the recommendations of the UK-funded 2016 Feasibility Study on Improving Commercial Case Management in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH).
