Case study 'Improving economic and social capacity'
The main goal of the project was to strengthen the socio – economic capacities of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Republic of Serbia and facilitate their access to justice. Part of the project concerned the provision of free legal aid to refugees, IDPs and other vulnerable population groups in the Republic of Serbia, such as minorities, women, etc. with the main aim being to facilitate the exercise of the human rights of these population groups. The other important component of the project was to strengthen the economic capacity of long-term unemployed refugees and IDP’s and promote the social inclusion of this particular vulnerable population, through the provision of vocational training to meet the demands of the labour market, free 5-6 months courses, apprenticeships and work experience. The project was funded by the Spanish Agency for International Development and Cooperation and implemented with partners: Movimiento por la Paz, Initiative for Development and Cooperation (IDC) Bosnia and Herzegovina and CLARD Kosovo.
