This report argues that an economic reform agenda introduced in a post-conflict country that is not underpinned by a rigorous feminist conflict and gender analysis, will contribute to a continuum of entrenched structural and gender inequalities. Furthermore, it claims that failure to prioritize compliance with human rights in the macro economic reform agenda, in this case particularly economic and social rights, will contribute to the ongoing social conflict in the country and increase the risk of re-occurrence of the conflict. The report looks at political and economic processes over the years leading up to adoption of the Reform Agenda for Bosnia and Herzegovina and analyses its likely outcomes on the structural gender equality and social justices in the country. Furthermore, the report looks at the linkages between international human rights obligations and the role international financial institutions play in designing and facilitating post-conflict recovery and reconstruction processes.
