“Children’s rights to be heard” – Findings of a Baseline Assessment on Child Partition in Serbia

The Network of Civil Society Organizations for Children in Serbia (MODS), coordinated by Association for Development of Children and Youth – OPEN CLUB, within the UNICEF Serbia -funded project, conducted a research 2011 on the existing mechanisms and the forms of child participation in local self-governments in Serbia.

The research, that examined the actual situation related to the Serbian children's participation in the decision-making processes in 20 municipalities, shows that young people are generally not included in decision-making at the local level and that most of them have never attended decision making community meetings and that their occasional participation is more symbolic than real. The research findings have set a baseline that will help guide future work on improving meaningful child participation in the country.
