The Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina deals as of 1 January 2004 with human rights complaints, since the mandate of the Human Rights Chamber (a quasi international body provided for by the Dayton Agreement) ended last year.
At the request of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina the Venice Commission has organised two trainings sessions for lawyers of the Constitutional Court in order for the Court to be operational as soon as possible. Lectures on the principles of the European Convention on Human Rights and the Strasbourg Court case-law and various constitutional courts represented will be followed by case studies looked at from the point of view of effective cases management and effective decision drafting methods.
