The Structured Dialogue on Justice is a newly-established mechanism of the European Commission. It aims to advance structured relations on the rule of law with potential candidate countries, even prior to the entry into force of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement (SAA). The Structured Dialogue will therefore assist Bosnia and Herzegovina to consolidate an independent, effective, efficient and professional judicial system. At the same time, the Dialogue helps the country move further along its path towards the EU.
The Structured Dialogue was launched by Commisioner Fuele; the first meeting of the EU-BiH Structured Dialogue on Justice was held on 6 and 7 June 2011 in Banja Luka and the second on 10th and 11th November 2011 in Sarajevo. The third session took place on 5th and 6th July 2012 in Mostar.
