Global Peace Index Ranking : No. 53 out of 162

   One can quickly come to assume that any country or issue selected as a Target for The Challenge at must be a "real mess." Hopefully, this overview helps to bring a Target into perspective. But for comparison, the United States is #94 out of the 162. So while Peace in Bosnia was a greater concern in the years of the war there, it still has Peace concerns and, once again, related to Corruption (see below). But it has thankfully improved markedly in recent years, and nowhere near the magnitude of problem seen in our last Target (Afghanistan). It still merits being the current Target, here at SendThemPeace.

Peace & Compassion Deficits :


One can get a clear idea of the challenges faced in Bosnia & Herzegovina by reading (at a minimum) the introductory summary pages

from the EU Commission on B & H, and why its entry into the EU seems stalled (2013).
