The Annual Report of the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality for 2016

Published 23.03.2017.

Brankica Janković, the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality, submitted the Regular Annual Report for 2016 to the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia. The Report states that the largest number of complaints, one-quarter of the total number of complaints, pertains to the discrimination on the grounds of disability and gender.

The complaints that follow are the ones related to discrimination on the grounds of age, nationality and health condition. Discrimination occurred mostly in the area of labour and employment, same as in previous years, one-third of the total number of complaints was made in connection with the process of employment or on-the-job treatment. This is followed by discrimination in the course of proceedings before government authorities, delivery of public services or use of public spaces and facilities.

The Report lists 24 recommendations for the suppression of discrimination and improvement of equality, among them is the recommendation to intensify efforts toward eliminating all barriers citizens with disabilities come across while accessing public buildings, means of transportation and communication facilities.

Commissioner for the Protection of Equality also recommended undertaking measures to provide pedagogical assistants for children who need additional support in education; adoption of the Law on Free Legal Assistance; and designing measures for economic empowerment of women and protection of women against discrimination in the labour market.

The improvement of the position of the elderly, especially in rural areas, and particularly in domains of social protection and healthcare, is also among the recommendations of the Commissioner.
