OSCE marks Human Rights Day

Today, on 10 December, the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina marks Human Rights Day by re-affirming our steadfast commitment to equality, dignity and justice for everyone living in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Standing together, we must promote solidarity, embrace diversity, protect media and other fundamental freedoms, secure the safe and sustainable return of displaced persons, improve the quality of and access to education, guarantee equality before the law and prevent all forms of gender-based violence. There must be full and meaningful respect for the inalienable rights of every individual, regardless of ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, national origin or any other protected characteristic. Every person in BiH and beyond deserves to live freely, without discrimination or oppression. Let's continue to advocate, educate and strive for a society in which human rights are universally recognized, upheld and enjoyed. Happy Human Rights Day!
