Presentation of Project “Improving the Equality Legal and Policy Framework in Serbia and Monitoring Implementation of Equality Norms and Policies“

The project "Improving the equality legal and policy framework in Serbia and monitoring implementation of equality norms and policies", implemented by Praxis, the Sandžak Committee for Protection of Human Rights and Freedoms from Novi Pazar and the Equal Rights Trust from London, was presented in the Multimedia Centre Gallery in Novi Pazar on 8 February 2017. The project is financed by the European Union for the period December 2016 - December 2018.

Semiha Kačar - President of the Sandžak Committee for Protection of Human Rights and Freedoms, Vuk Raičević - Antidiscrimination and Gender Equality Programme Coordinator in Praxis and Joanna Whiteman - Co-director of the Equal Rights Trust spoke about the project and its objectives.

The overall objective of the project is to provide protection against all forms of discrimination in Serbia through legal and political reforms. The specific objective of the project is to improve the legal framework in the field of anti-discrimination and equality, as well as to support the civil society in Serbia to recognise discrimination and use the available mechanisms for protection against discrimination.

Non-governmental organisations at the local level will have the opportunity to actively participate in the implementation of certain project activities, such as organising advocacy campaigns, monitoring and documenting cases of discrimination, for which certain funds will be allocated.
