Open Society Foundation Serbia

The Open Society Foundation Serbia supports a broad range of activities that contribute to the development of a functioning democratic state in Serbia. The foundation supports associations of lawyers and judges to protect the independence of the judiciary.  We also protect important public agencies from government interference by supporting efforts to strengthen the independence and integrity of the freedom of information commissioner, the ombudsman, and the anticorruption agency.

Our work on EU integration focuses on increasing policymaker attention on the details and deliberations required for integration and also encouraging public interest and participation in the process. These efforts have helped move the country forward in the membership process and reach agreement on the normalization of relations with Kosovo.

To help foster Roma equality and integration, the foundation collaborates with Roma organizations and the government to help implement the national agenda for the Decade of Roma Inclusion. We have prioritized improving Roma education and work to develop recommendations to increase Roma access to quality schooling without considerable additional public spending.
