The Agency for European Integration and Economic Development (AEI) supported the development of legislation and offered capacity building for police in Bosnia and Herzegovina to better tackle cybercrime.



The overall objective of the project is to work on effective cybercrime deterrence improved in line with the EU and international standards.


Funding for the twinning project “EU for Fight Against Cybercrime in Bosnia and Herzegovina” is provided by the European Union, from the IPA fund for 2017. It is a capacity-building project, with a budget of 1 million euros.

The implementation of the project was granted to a Twinning consortium, composed of the Austrian Ministry of Interior, as a senior partner, and the Croatian Ministry of Interior, as a junior partner. The Agency for European Integration and Economic Development is providing technical support to the successful implementation of the project from the first beginning.


The project was designed to support the development of relevant rules and legislation as well as training and capacity building of lower levels of the police system in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The resources were aligned with local demands on knowledge and skills needed to fight against cybercrime.


The project activities are grouped into two components. The first is aimed at transferring the practical knowledge and skills necessary to fight cybercrime and is implemented by Austrian police experts, while the second is implemented by Croatian police experts and is contributing to the harmonization of legislation with the EU acquis.

Through the implementation of the project, advantages of the Consortium partners are combined with benefits of police services that are fighting cybercrime in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The first advantage is Austrian experience in international cooperation. The second is recent Croatian experience in accession to the European Union, the similarity of legal systems of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia, and easy communication among experts due to the absence of a language barrier.
