Project: Legal aid consultant – cross country comparison of regional free legal aid experiences (part of the fiscal impact assessment for legal aid legislation)

Donor: World Bank
About the project: Right to free legal aid is one of the fundamental rights of democratic society. It enables equal access to justice for all citizens.

Very significant issue is financial sustainability of the free legal aid system.

Project: Antidiscrimination mechanisms in practice

Duration: April 2012 – December 2012

Donor: This project is supported by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany.

About the project: The project objective is the litigation of strategic cases and monitoring the implementation of anti-discrimination mechanisms in specific cases, refugees, internally displaced persons, returnees based on readmission and Roma. It is the continuation of activities in line with the findings of previously realized project, which showed a strong need of members of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups for more support and consistent monitoring of the implementation of anti-discrimination mechanisms. Also, it appears that there are still laws and regulations that prevent members of the aforementioned social groups to enjoy their fundamental rights – which requires testing their legality and constitutionality. YUCOM’s legal team came to the conclusion that many of these rights are directly related to the right to adequate housing.

The presidents of Serbia and Croatia are sounding a conciliatory tone following their first meeting, and are even floating the idea of dropping genocide lawsuits filed before the International Court of Justice.

Serbia President Tomislav Nikolic, speaking to reporters following the October 16th meeting, said the lawsuits should be stopped for the sake of peaceful relations. Neither side would be satisfied should the issue be played out in court, he said.
