Coalitions against Hate (CaH)

Since 2013, the OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina has been engaged in combating hate- and bias-motivated incidents and crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina through supporting the establishment of informal associations called the Coalitions against Hate (CaHs) and social cohesion activities in specific communities in BIH.

The main objective of CaHs is to assist local communities in preventing and condemning hate- and bias-motivated incidents and crimes, promoting tolerance and social cohesion as an alternative to hate, and supporting development of strategic municipal documents containing mechanisms for sustained engagement of civil society in promotion of social cohesion (Community Cohesion Action Plans - CCAPs).
