Contribution to Sustainability of Return of Roma from Sweden and Other Countries in Europe in Serbia

 

 

 

As of 1 September 2010, Praxis will be implementing a project entitled “Contribution to Sustainability of Return of Roma from Sweden and Other Countries in Europe to Serbia”, funded by the Swedish Migration Board. The Project lasts until 31 August 2010. It is aimed at raising awareness and empowering returnees upon readmission agreements, voluntary returnees and wider Roma population in Serbia to access and protect their rights in Serbia and become fully included and integrated in Serbian society.

At the same time, the Project is aimed at sensitizing relevant stakeholders, both at the local and national level, about the problems of this population and instigating them to jointly work on facilitating access of this vulnerable group to their basic rights. In addition to information campaign addressing representatives of authorities and institutions and information sessions for Roma returnees and wider Roma population about their rights, the Project also includes provision of free legal assistance, information and counselling to returnees from Sweden and other countries in Europe in relation to obtaining documents from registry books, civil registration procedure in case persons are not registered in Serbian registry books, registration of residence and access to basic socio-economic rights (rights to social welfare, health care, education, employment, immediate cash assistance, accommodation, etc).
