Roundtables on Testing the Implementation of the Ombudsperson’s Recommendations Regarding Vulnerable Persons Held in Belgrade

In June and July 2013, Praxis in cooperation with the Deputy Ombudsperson for National Minority Rights held 4 roundtables named “Testing the Implementation of the Ombudsperson’s Recommendations Regarding Vulnerable Persons”, within the project of the same name, funded by USAID through Judicial Reform and Government Accountability Project.

The goal of the roundtables held in Belgrade, Subotica, Kraljevo and Bujanovac was to present the report “Testing the Implementation of the Ombudsperson’s Recommendations Regarding Vulnerable Persons”, which comprises the results of testing of the implementation of 19 Ombudsperson’s recommendations and the main obstacles to their implementation, to the representatives of non-governmental sector and republic and local authorities. The roundtables were also an opportunity to exchange opinions related to the model of mechanism for monitoring the implementation of the Ombudsperson’s recommendations proposed by Praxis in the report.

Several proposals, which would contribute to more efficient implementation of recommendations, were presented during the discussion: deepening the cooperation between the ombudspersons at republic and local levels, more active role of the non-governmental sector in the process of testing of the implementation of recommendations and necessity of appointing someone in public authorities to be responsible for maintaining the contact with the Ombudsperson.
