Annual Report of the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality for 2014 Published

Published 18.03.2015.

Socijalna isključenost - ilustracijaDiscrimination in Serbia is still a very widespread phenomenon, assesses the annual report of the commissioner for the protection of equality, Nevena Petrušić.

The report for 2014, submitted to the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia, states it is clear that the social reality in Serbia is marked by deeply rooted and widespread gender, ethnic and other stereotypes and prejudices and a high degree of social distancing against certain minorities. The public survey indicates that the largest predisposition for discrimination exists in regards to LGBT persons, members of other ethnic communities and minority religious communities. Likewise, the survey that encompassed representatives of public authorities indicates that a significant number of those surveyed makes no difference between discrimination and prejudice, as well as between mobbing and discrimination.

As stated, the commissioner received 666 complaints during 2014, most of those in regards to discrimination based on national affiliation or ethnic origin (18%), healthcare status (14%) and age (11%). Over one third of the complaints (36%) were submitted due to discrimination during the procedure of employment, or at work. Discrimination by public authorities comprises 16% of the complaints, while discrimination during the provision or public services or use of buildings and areas represents 15.6%.

During 2014 the commissioner adopted 109 opinions, with discrimination determined in 66 cases and relevant recommendations issued to the discriminators.

The largest number of complaints were submitted against legal persons and state bodies.
