In the course of the last decade, the challenge of corruption in Bosnia and Herzegovina has attracted increasing attention from the citizenry and political elites of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as from the international community and donor organisations active in the country.

However, while a number of legislative and institutional reforms have already been undertaken, enforcement of anti-corruption regulations remains to a large extent ineffective. Lack of firm political will to fight the phenomenon remains one of the key obstacles to more successful action.
