Training Course: Migration and the Right to Asylum
During December, in Vranje and Subotica, Group 484, Belgrade Centre for Human Rights and ASTRA conducted a training course entitled “Migration and the right to asylum”, which brought together representatives of civil society organisations, the Council for Migration and other local institutions, state and local bodies responsible for reception or interested in education on the provision of care to different categories of migrants.
The main topics were migration, refugee law, asylum system in the RS and the position of particularly vulnerable asylum seekers. Special attention was focused on the role that civil society organisations have, or may have in the realisation of the rights of migrants. For the purposes of the training course, an appropriate manual was prepared with key international and regional documents and applicable RS legal acts related to migration.
In addition to these two training courses during April training courses will be held in Sjenica, Tutin, Dimitrovgrad and Obrenovac.
These activities are part of the project “Networking and Capacity Building for More Effective Migration Policy in Serbia, implemented by Group 484 in partnership with the Belgrade Centre for Human Rights and the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy, with the support from the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Belgrade, as well as the project “Towards Europeanisation Serbia – the improvement of the legislative framework, established policies and practices in the areas of asylum and readmission in the Republic of Serbia”, supported by the Foundation for an Open Society Serbia.
