The last results of the research performed by the Association KULT on problems and requirements of youth in, for example, Municipalities in Sarajevo display devastating statistics: 64% of youth would leave BiH forever or for a longer period of time. What is the situation like in smaller BiH communities?! Undoubtedly worse. These alarming information should not be surprising: even in the election year the authorities allocated only 2 BAM per person. According to the previous researches conducted by the NGOs, in the past 4 years, the BiH authorities have allocated the least funds for youth requirements, a “total” of 14 million BAM in 4 years, which is barely 0.05% of the total budget funds.  

Even though there are entity laws that oblige the authorities to support youth by adopting and implementing strategic documents, only 43% of municipalities in BiH have a youth strategy. 62% of municipalities have an official who focuses on youth issues, although the area of “youth” mostly does not reach not even 20% of their worktime, because they are responsible of other tasks. The local representative government does not bring positive figures either: 81% of municipalities have a youth commission as a part of the council/assembly, but in 49% of municipalities the youth commission is not functional. The same municipal councils/assemblies adopted (or did not) the budgets that support youth activism: where there are youth budgets, in 44% they do not exceed 10 thousand BAM.

The Law on Youth Organising in Republika Srpska  was adopted in 2004, and the Youth Law of FBiHwas adopted in June 2010. They provide for applicable and concrete solutions – only if they were consistently implemented. For the promotion of the Youth Law of FBiH, the Association KULT started a promo-campaign in collaboration with four partnership organisations to initiate a promo-campaign to introduce the Law to all youth, associations and authorities and introduce them with their rights and obligations. During the promotion, over 40 public presentations of the Law, round tables and youth workshops will be held and authorities and youth organisations will be encouraged to implement legal provisions. An online quiz was prepared for the youth, in which they can answer questions related to Youth Law in FBiH and they have an opportunity to win a laptop. Additional information on the Law and promotion are available at www.mladi.org.
