ECRI report on Serbia

Despite advances in the adoption of the Anti-Discrimination Law, strong efforts to deal with the war past and improve the position of the Gypsies, Serbia needs to do a lot to stop the continued growth of hate speech, combat racism among sports fans, protect Roma and LGBT people and speed up prosecution war crimes, the European Commission announced in its latest report on Serbia by the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) of the Council of Europe.
The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance was established on March 22, 1994, with the aim of combating racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and intolerance that jeopardize human rights and democratic values in Europe. Analyzing the situation in member states of the Council of Europe, ECRI makes recommendations aimed at revising Member States' legislation, and their policies and other measures to combat racism. ECRI recommendations are not binding, but they are seriously considered in the Member States and are generally implemented.
