Strengthening fundamental rights in Serbia



Name of the project: “Strengthening fundamental rights in Serbia”

Project duration: November 2022 – April 2025

Donor: GIZ

Project value: 214.060,00 EUR

“Strengthening fundamental rights in Serbia” aims to enhance the protection of fundamental rights in Serbia through three components: protecting personal data, providing free legal aid, and protecting the rights of suspects. The project seeks to support the Government of Serbia in improving its policy and legal framework to comply with international commitments and EU accession negotiation requirements particularly related to Chapter 23 and to increase the legal literacy of civil servants.

The project will prioritize establishing good cooperation with local self-government units to ensure officials are informed about regulatory changes and adequately trained to implement them. In addition to hosting extensive training programs, various panels, conferences, and workshops, the project will promote the principles of good governance, transparency and responsibility in work and develop analysis on certain laws.  To achieve its goals, the project will strengthen institutions and improve their services, with a particular focus on protecting personal data, respecting the procedural rights of suspects and providing free legal aid in a non-discriminatory manner.

The project is implemented by the Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights – YUCOM, in cooperation with the German International Organization for Cooperation, and it is only a part of the program “Strengthening Fundamental Rights in the Republic of Serbia” (EU FOR THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION AND FOR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS) which is jointly funded by the EU and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) is responsible for the implementation of project activities related to the protection of personal data, free legal aid and the protection of the rights of suspects that YUCOM has been carrying out.
