Electoral Code Working Group, Bosnia and Herzegovina Activity Compendium, January - March, 1996
THE ODIHR/IFES ELECTORAL CODE WORKING GROUP (ECWG) BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
January - March 1996
Beginning in early January 1996, the International Foundation for Election Systems (IFES), with funding from the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), set forth on a mission to support the legal and administrative capabilities of the Provisional Election Commission (PEC) of Bosnia and Herzegovina. As the OSCE organ responsible for furthering human rights, democracy and the Rule of Law, the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) shares and exchanges information on the building of democratic institutions and monitors elections in participating States. It is within this framework that the ODIHR continues to work with IFES to develop ongoing activities supporting the mandate of the OSCE Mission to Sarajevo.
From February 5 through March 1, two staff members of IFES were seconded to the PEC of Bosnia and Herzegovina as technical election advisors. Jeff Fischer, Executive Vice President, and Scott R. LanseIl, Program Officer for Europe and Asia, were the staff members based in Sarajevo. While performing their role as technical election advisors to the PEC, the IFES team assisted in the facilitation of the following missions:
Phase I: Presentation of ECWG Legislative Analysis
Phase II: The PEC Mass Media Implementation Plan
