The article deals with the contemporary labor migrations from Bosnia and Herzegovina to Slovenia and the other countries of European Union, specifically during the period of the COVID-19 pandemic. On the basis of fieldwork among the participants in these migrations, it seeks to identify the specifics of circumstances and situations that arose suddenly with the closure of political borders and the demands of social di-stancing. In these circumstances, we supposed that labor migrants found themselves to be a particularly vulnerable group of population.

This project builds upon and constitutes the continuation of the Joint UN Programme ‘Seeking Care, Support and Justice for Survivors of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence in Bosnia and Herzegovina’ (2014-18) with the overall purpose of enhancing survivors’ access to justice, care, empowerment and reparations throughout BiH and in line with international standards. With this proposal, the UN, under the leadership of IOM and UNFPA, intends to round up legislative framework’s implementation for CRSV survivors and alleviate the stigma attached to CRSV in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The purpose of this project is to facilitate the voluntary return of irregular migrants stranded in Bosnia & Herzegovina (BiH) to their respective countries of origin. The project will assist migrants to return to their home countries in a safe and dignified manner. The project will provide up to 700 stranded migrants with information about the programme, with pre-departure arrangements, medical screening, return counselling and return transportation assistance.
This project will strengthen the mechanism in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) to facilitate the voluntary return of stranded irregular migrants in the country ) to their respective countries of origin. The project will assist migrants in returning to their home countries in a safe and dignified manner and will also help to alleviate the strain on scarce resources of the BiH State.
The proposed intervention is founded on the basic assumption that coherent advocacy and capacitation of public institutions, combined with fully integrated approach to addressing Stigma across all activities, at every level leads towards improved services, legislation, policies, mechanisms and practices that impact the lives of survivors.
