Federal Institute for Development Programming organized a workshop and analyzed the situation in the area of corruption, good governance and public services in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
According to Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index 2018, BiH is 89th in the list of 180 countries.

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 organizations active in the country.

Legislative power, the judiciary and political parties are mentioned as the most corrupt segment of society.
