Forum was founded in 1993 as a civic movement, with a vision to create democratic society that promotes equality and legal security of all citizens regardless of their ethnicity, gender, political affiliation. The Forum focuses on development of institutions that protect citizens' interests and provide justice and equality for all, based on respect of human and civil rights in line with international legal acts. The Forum is one of the founders of Democratic Alternative in BiH in 1996, and in 1998, it launched an idea of establishing a Committee for Truth and Reconciliation in BiH. In 1996, it founded the first NGO network in BiH -Civic Alternative Parliament. It promoted anti-war activism through establishment of civil dialogue. These efforts grew up into the Igman initiative in 2000. The Forum has been active in civic election monitoring in BiH and has worked intensively on reforming legislations such as Law on the Principles of Local Self-Government in FBiH and BiH and amendments to the Constitutions of BiH and FBiH. It has been promoting cross-border cooperation among NGOs, businessmen and government institutions.

Helsinski100x100Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Republika Srpska was founded in 1996 with a mission to promote, protect and monitor human rights in Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the region. From 1998 to 2008, the Committee monitored human rights and publicized regular quarterly reports. Since 2001, in collaboration with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, it implemented five conferences in local communities where serious war crimes had been committed, gathering more than 1.300 citizens. Following these many debates, the responsible government institutions in BiH launched a number of investigations against individuals suspected of war crimes during the war in BiH. In early 2000, in collaboration with its partners in the region, the Committee launched a training program to educate young people on human rights and active citizenry, reaching out and improving the capacities of more than 18.500 young people to advocate for positive changes in the society. Since 2005, it has supported the justice sector reform as part of the "BIH Court Support Network." In 2010, it engaged in the activities of the Expert group for transitional justice strategy for BiH and its action plan. Over the years, the Committee publicized several research studies in the area of human rights and sexual freedom of LGBTIQ population, ethnically motivated violence on sports grounds in Bijeljina and Tuzla, perception of corruption at universities, corruption in healthcare, etc. It is a member of many national, regional and international networks, such as BIRN, Regional network for education on human rights, HREA, BiH Justice Network, etc.
