Belgrade Centre for Human Rights has compiled a periodic report Right to Asylum in the Republic of Serbia covering the first six months of 2020. The authors have analysed the treatment of the asylum seekers and refugees during and after the state of emergency focusing in particular on access to asylum procedure, reception conditions and possibilities for integration into Serbian society.

The report contains comprehensive analyses of the public discourse on migrants in the first half of 2020 as well as the data on activities and initiatives taken by the BCHR legal team before state institutions and independent institutions against violation of human rights of asylum seekers and refugees in the Republic of Serbia.  In that regard the authors aimed to give attention to examples of good practice as well as point to gaps in legal acts and conducts of relevant authorities. The main goal of our approach is development of functional asylum system. Accordingly, the BCHR have suggested recommendations for improvement of practice and legal framework.
