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.

Lawyer’s Committee for Human Rights – YUCOM, together with the Belgrade Centre for Human Rights, in the period from March to December 2012 implemented the project that aims to determine the effect of the recommendations coming from the Ombudsman of the Republic of Serbia and to investigate the influence of the authority of this institution in relation to public bodies for which the Ombudsman’s office found a violation of the principles of good governance.

Supporting the mechanism for the protection of individual rights by the Ombudsman is necessary considering that the recommendations of the Ombudsman are not legally binding and having also in mind the determined practice that although the Ombudsman gives recommendations, public authorities that committed a violation of law often do not follow these suggestions.
