This publication presents a comprehensive analysis of the legal framework regulating the crime of murder in Bosnia and Herzegovina and a case-law analysis covering the legal qualification of criminal offences, the phenomenological characteristics of the committed crimes, the perpetrator profiles, victim profiles, criminal sanctions, duration of court proceedings, as well as how civil claims for damages are handled. In Part Two are selected five cases of homicide, attempted homicide, aggravated homicide and domestic violence involving homicide, which, in the researchers’ opinion, were specific to the phenomenon of femicide in terms of the type of criminal offence, method of commission, means of commission, the relationship between the victim and the perpetrator, presence of gender biases and stereotypes, and gender discrimination. At the end are summed key findings and recommendations.
