As a part of the Humanity in Action 2019 Sarajevo Fellowship, HIA Fellows Victoria Thorsen, Alma Hasanbegović, Nikolas Slackman, and Amina Pirić created a civic action campaign that focused on anti-corruption and accountability in Bosnia & Herzegovina. They tackled corruption at universities in Bosnia. Both local and international Fellows in the group are students themselves, offering a unique perspective on the issue.
They found that, because corruption is so prevalent within Bosnian universities, many students do not recognize that corruption is illegal, or not the norm around the world. The Fellows believe that peer-to-peer education is crucial when inspiring students to take action. They hope to educate students that corruption is not permitted, and to empower them to take responsibility and file a report.
