Donor: International Rescue Committee

Duration: March 2017 – May 2018

The aim of the project was to provide consistent refugee protection monitoring in reception centres in Dimitrovgrad, Pirot, Divljana and Bosilegrad.

The Belgrade Centre for Human Rights will work on achieving improvement in several areas – providing legal information to refugees on asylum procedure and their rights in Serbia, direct humanitarian provision to most vulnerable groups, strengthening a referral mechanism and the capacities of local organizations to cope with refugee and migrant crisis. One of the main characteristics of the project is developing an effective cross-borders cooperation with Hungarian Helsinki Committee, in terms of information exchange and joint strategic litigation before national and international bodies.
