This is the sixth National Human Development Report produced for Bosnia and Herzegovina, examining a topical human development issue. This year the report analyses the different facets and causes of social exclusion in BiH and provides recommendations for promoting social inclusion. The concept of social inclusion, which is at the heart of EU social policy-making, is very much congruent with both the human development and the human rights-based approaches to socio-economic development. These approaches draw upon economic and social rights analyses and take into account all entitlements relevant for enlarging the choices of individuals to live a decent and meaningful life. In addition, they share a common concern about equity, non-discrimination and inclusive participation.
