The Republic of Serbia has passed through a period of dramatic change during the last 25 years.

The disintegration of the SFRJ at the beginning of 1990s; bombing at the end of the same decade; political changes at the beginning of the 2000s followed by numerous elections; and the world economic crises in 2008, which brought about a crisis of public finances and increased the public debt all contributed to a tremendous fall of the economy and an increase of poverty and inequality in Serbia.
