This will be achieved by making often visits to those places, conducting interviews with refugees/migrants as well as with relevant stakeholders and CSOs. Experiences gained during the project will be reflected in a final project report with recommendations for the improvement of the status and the treatment of refugees/migrants in Serbia.
