Social Progress Watch 2015 Country Report | Serbia

Serbia continues to be challenged by its high-unemployment rate, the insufficient quality of health services and the education system, and its difficulties effectively integrating its Roma population and other minorities. These challenges have been described by the European Institutions in great detail and their findings are supported by the findings of the SOLIDAR EU Strategy Group in Serbia. Nevertheless, the government continues to make little progress on all these fronts. In particular, our Strategy Group reports that little effort is being made by the government to engage with the growing civil society sector, and break through the current stalemate in the tripartite social dialogue.
