Civil Rights Defenders is organising a public discussion about the newly adopted Law on Public Peace and Order in Republika Srpska (BiH). How will the law influence independent media, civil society organisations and the state of human rights and freedom of speech in Republika Srpska and the whole Bosnia and Herzegovina? Is the law protecting public peace and order or the authorities? Join us and take part in the debate!
