In the January– September 2019 period, the Republic of Serbia continued extending humanitarian assistance to a large number of migrants, without ascertaining in each individual case whether they were in need of international protection or issuing individual decisions determining their status. BCHR compiled a periodic report on first quarter of 2019 through detailed analysis of the right to access the asylum procedure, with special focus on the procedures at the Belgrade airport Nikola Tesla. The report also reviews the recent practice of Serbian asylum authorities and analyses individual decisions as well as protection of unaccompanied and separated children in the asylum procedure. Additionally, in this report the BCHR project team analysed access to rights related to integration of persons granted asylum in the society of the Republic of Serbia.
