IUS Faculty of Law Poster and Presentation Competition

Topic

Law, Democracy and Youth: How the Youth See Law as a Tool for Furthering Democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Description

Bosnia and Herzegovina is still a young democracy that continues to face many challenges. Ethnic divisions, shrinking population, reluctance of youth to meaningfully engage in democratic and political processes and underrepresentation of women in many areas of the society are just some of the hurdles that undermine democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Why wait for tomorrow to cope with these burning issues when bright young minds of Bosnia and Herzegovina are full of creativity, curiosity and positive energy!
The IUS Faculty of Law Poster and Presentation Competition seeks to encourage the youth to put forward their voices and to propose their vision of how law can be used as a tool to reshape and to remould democracy in Bosnia and Herzegovina for it to function for all.

The best posters/presentations will be awarded scholarships for studying law at the IUS Faculty of Law.

Instructions

The Competition will be divided into two parts:

1) Preparation and submission of the poster in English or Bosnian,
2) Presentation to accompany (explain) the poster in English or Bosnian.

The poster should showcase your creativity. It can be in the form of a classic high school ‘pano’ i.e. it can be a work of art (e.g. a drawing, a painting accompanied with text, etc.) or it can be generated entirely or partially on a computer. A combination of these approaches is also welcome.
