Situation analysis of children and adolescents in Serbia
The analysis, which is rights-based, looks at the progress, challenges and opportunities to achieving child rights, well-being and the patterns of deprivation that children face.
The Situation Analysis (SitAn) is an analytical narrative report on children’s rights and wellbeing in Serbia. The analysis, which is rights-based, looks at the progress, challenges and opportunities to achieving child rights, well-being and the patterns of deprivation that children face.
It analyses the causes of these deprivations and the barriers that prevent the fulfilment of child rights. It examines and acknowledges the progress of policy and programme interventions for at-scale coverage of inclusive social services for key populations, including the adequacy of policy delivery, especially budgets and resources, with a focus on ensuring no child is left behind.
It looks at the unequal realization of rights and levels and depths of disparities across different equity dimensions. It highlights the situation of children who are left behind, in spite of their rights to social
services and opportunities, and those most at risk of being left behind. It also highlights those aspects of child rights where further attention and action may be needed.
The SitAn is intended to be a reference document on children in the country, useful to government bodies, independent bodies, development partners including UNICEF, civil society, private sector as well as a broader audience.
