Roma in Serbia Exposed to Systemic Discrimination - EurActiv.rs

On 22 May 2018, the report entitled The Wall of Anti-Gypsysm - Roma in Serbia, prepared by the Civil Rights Defenders, was presented in the Media Centre in Belgrade. The report includes the information about the situation of Roma in Serbia in different areas of life, including employment, education, housing, access to justice, personal documents, health, security and freedom from torture, asylum and forced return.   

On that occasion, Marija Dražović, Antidiscrimination and Gender Equality Programme Coordinator in Praxis, said that the problem of discrimination against Roma should be seen from the perspective of good public administration. 

"The basic problem is how our judiciary provides access to justice, because if citizens are not aware of their rights, they do not exist", said Marija, adding that institutions must begin to formulate regulations to address the situation of the most vulnerable groups of population.
