Supporting the Reintegration of Roma Returnees

About the Project

 Launching of the project in July 2016 Launching of the project in July 2016

The 2015 migration crisis has posed severe challenges for the European Union and has an impact on all asylum-related policies. Despite the fact that only 1 percent of requests submitted so far in Germany and other EU countries was considered admissible, Serbian citizens continue to apply for the asylum. The increase of unfounded asylum applications lodged by Serbian nationals threatens to jeopardize the visa free regime granted to Serbia in 2009.

80% of registered returnees under the readmission agreement are Roma and local self-governments have limited capacities to deal with their inclusion.
UNDP will work on enabling employment opportunities for Roma returnees, combined with support in education and housing. UNDP will also try to improve coordination mechanisms at the local level and contribute to awareness raising of returnees on how to improve their livelihoods.

Expected Outcome

UNDP will work on enabling employment opportunities for Roma returnees, combined with support in education and housing. In addition, UNDP will try to improve coordination mechanisms at the local level and contribute to awareness raising of returnees on how to improve their livelihoods.
