After achieving their first success, Roma women from the Center continued to work actively to promote the rights of Roma women, to fight for a dignified life without violence and discrimination for every Roma woman.

FIELD WORK – TOURS OF ROMA SETTLEMENTS

Visits to Roma settlements were realized throughout the reporting period, with multiple objectives:

  • Distribution of information material – leaflets and brochures with different content: information on the work of the organization and the services it provides, information on recommended actions during the Covid-19 pandemic, information on how to exercise rights at institutions and more.
  • Direct communication with users and potential users, in order to understand their needs, difficulties and challenges, and to create
  • Direct work with women who have experienced violence or are at risk of male violence, with the aim of empowering and motivating them to mobilize in the fight for their rights. Direct contact with Roma women in the field is an integral part of our consultative work, given that Roma women are often reluctant to turn for support to associations that provide services if they do not already know who to talk to.
  • We mapped 20 substandard Roma settlements in Belgrade to make the settlements more visible and planned for the upcoming census. Links have been made on google maps that will make it easier to find mapped settlements. Surveys and analyzes of living and living conditions in these settlements were conducted.

Work with Centers for Social Work and schools

The team of the Roma Center for Women and Children „Daje“ together with the lawyer Zoran Jovanović, and at the invitation of the user of the Center for Social Work from Ćuprija, attended the case study on April 15 in the premises of the Center for Social Work Ćuprija.

In front of the Center for Social Work Ćuprija, the meeting was attended by the director of the Center Dragana Marković, delegated social worker Jelena as well as the psychologist of the Center Vesna and Milica the social worker.

During 2021, 30 letters were sent to the Centers for Social Work in order to reach the beneficiaries who exercised some of their rights in need.

Members of the Daje team, a psychologist and a journalist, met with the school principal Sava Jovanović Sirogojno on November 14 and talked to her about Roma children attending their educational institution. The director of this school showed great interest in our research, so at the request of the school, we visited and personally reviewed the documentation and discussed the problems and ways to solve them. The impression from the meeting is that this school is very dedicated to each student individually and that each individual is supported in accordance with his needs and abilities. This school is an example of good practice of cooperation of the school with relevant institutions of importance for children, as well as with the civil sector whose task is to improve the position of these children.

RESEARCH

In the previous period, the organization worked on the development of research activities, with the aim of collecting data on users and other target groups, in order to create services, programs and other activities that are in line with their needs.

At the beginning of the project year, we started collecting data for monitoring the implementation of the Instruction on the work of centers for social work in the protection of children from child marriages for 2020. Requests for access to information of public importance were sent to the Centers for Social Work. Work in Belgrade, Pozarevac, Smederevska Palanka and Kragujevac. It was originally planned that the research would cover the entire territory of Serbia, but we gave up this intention because in the meantime CSO Praxis published a study on child, early and forced marriages in Serbia – regulations, reactions and prevention, which provides data on implementation for 2020 year.

In the continuation of the research for 2021, the „Roma Center for Women and Children Daje“ sent requests for access to information of public importance to primary schools in Belgrade in 11 municipalities. The request was sent to 35 addresses electronically, as well as by mail. We received the answer within the legal deadline of 33 primary schools, while 2 schools did not submit the requested data.

In accordance with Article 22 of the Law on the Fundamentals of the Education System, 33 primary schools responded a total of 332 times in 2021. Out of 332 reactions, in 77 cases the schools included the Center for Social Work. It should be noted that these figures are lower than in previous years, given the Corona virus and the possibility of online teaching. During the research, the organization „Roma Center for Women and Children Daje“ was in active contact with schools in order to get the best possible insight into the information and data we requested. Also, the psychologist and the journalist responded to the invitation for a physical inspection of the requested documentation. Although primary schools generally behave in full compliance with the law, we note that many schools have not been more deeply involved in determining why children do not come to school, as well as in continuing their compulsory, compulsory schooling for all. Also, an important fact is that some schools do not have positive cooperation with the Center for Social Work, which makes it difficult to further solve this problem. By analyzing the obtained data, we conclude that the vast majority of those who attend classes irregularly or drop out of school altogether are Roma children. Such information is very important to us in order to recognize, above all, the possibility of early, forced marriages and work on their prevention. We can also assume that different types of problems occur in the families of children who do not attend school. Accordingly, our organization has offered assistance to schools and is ready for any kind of cooperation in order to return children to school. The opinion of the organization is that it would be good to have a legal procedure that would not imply punishment for irregular presence in cases of violence and lack of material living conditions, but to provide assistance to the family as a priority.

Data collection for monitoring the National Strategy for Social Inclusion of Roma Men and Women 2016-2025 and the Strategy for Gender Equality 2016-2020

During 2020, the organization monitored the implementation of activities from the corresponding national action plans. InformedThere are over 40 requests for access to information of public importance to police stations, municipalities and centers for social work from the following cities and municipalities: Belgrade , Zvezdra, Voždovac, Palilula, Zemun and Smedrevska Palanka, Kostolac, Kragujevac and Mladenovac. Collected data and conclusions regarding the implementation of national action plans for the implementation of the two strategies, in the parts selected as the most important for improving the position of Roma women, were presented in the publication „Women’s Rights of Roma Women in Serbia“.

The Roma Center for Women and Children Daje involved four associations from the URPN network in research activities with the aim of analyzing which are the biggest problems in settlements, violence, discrimination or security. The plan is to include 8 new associations, members of the URPN, in research activities in the next two years.

PUBLIC ADVOCACY

Public advocacy activities to improve the position of Roma are implemented at several levels:

  • advocating for beneficiaries in order to raise awareness of gender-based violence and mobilize Roma women to become actively involved in the fight for their rights,
  • advocating for the Roma community to promote gender equality,
  • advocacy for local and national decision makers and relevant institutions,
  • advocacy towards the institutions of the European Union and international reference bodies for monitoring in the field of gender equality and the rights of national minorities.

During the reporting period, the organization informed at least 30 representatives of state institutions about the position of Roma women in our country, and in addition to data collected from the field, the organization provided stakeholders with recommendations for improving the position of Roma women and invited them to dialogue.

Emergency shelter

With the support of the Autonomous Women’s Center, we are advocating with the City of Belgrade for a change in the budget and the introduction of a new type of service – Emergency Shelter. Namely, a woman, at the moment when she escapes from violence, especially Roma women, often has nowhere to go with her children. We know that the procedure for entering the Safe Women’s House is very complex and requires time, which a woman victim of violence does not have. The emergency shelter would be a service available to women victims of violence to collect their personal documents and evidence in those 2-3 days in order to initiate court proceedings, and at the same time it would be a safe place for a warm night and rest. a meal for women victims of violence and their children. which she needs at that moment. After our proposal to change the budget of the city of Belgrade was rejected, we submitted a request for the transfer of funds and we are waiting for a response.

Monitoring and analysis of VHR laws and strategies for Roma

During 2021, we monitored the implementation of laws and strategies in the field of gender equality and minority rights. Based on our experience with beneficiaries, Romani women who have experienced gender-based violence, we concluded that the effectiveness of emergency measures (defined by the Law on Prevention of Domestic Violence) is questionable, given that many Romani women live in multigenerational families related to perpetrators. Institutional inactivity due to racism and discrimination remains a problem when Roma women report violence or seek help. Also problematic is the rejection of the proposed amendments to the Family Law, which prescribed a minimum age of 18 for marriage, without the possibility of giving exclusive approval for marriage at 16, especially from the perspective of combating early marriages, which are widespread among Roma. Regarding the strategic framework, the Republic of Serbia has adopted a Strategy for the Prevention and Combating of Gender-Based Violence against Women and Domestic Violence, after 6 years of delay.

As part of the activities of monitoring the state’s obligations arising from the CEDAV Convention, we analyzed a part of the State Report on the Implementation of Recommendation no. 12a, 26a, 44 and 48g from the Concluding Observations of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women regarding the Fourth Periodic Report on the Elimination of All Forms of Women, submitted by the State of Serbia to the CEDAV Committee in March this year. Our analysis referred to the part of the report on the implementation of recommendation no. 44, which refers to the position of women from vulnerable social groups.

As part of monitoring the implementation of the recommendations of the GREVIO expert group, in the period from April to May 2021, the organization sent requests for information of public importance to 34 basic state prosecutor’s offices in Serbia to submit data on the number of criminal charges. and criminal proceedings. Article 187a CC) and cohabitation with a minor (Article 190 CC) in 2020. Of the 34 basic public prosecutor’s offices to which requests were submitted, 29 prosecutor’s offices submitted a response to the organization within the legal deadline, while 5 prosecutor’s offices did not provide requested information or response to requests. . The processing of the obtained data, as well as the analysis, indicates that the number of criminal charges for these crimes is extremely low, when the prevalence of forced and juvenile marriages in the Roma population is taken into account. Based on the analysis, we also conclude that it is necessary to conduct research that would examine the reasons for the small number of reports of these crimes, and thus even fewer criminal proceedings.

Advocacy for the EU

Representatives of the organization participated in the meeting of the Regional Advocacy Planning of the World Bank, which was organized on February 25 by Kvinna Till Kvinna. The training consisted of lectures and discussions on mental health policy, as well as strengthening the cooperation of regional organizations through joint exchange planning for 2021. During the meeting, advocacy efforts were planned for 2021, including which processes and actors we connect or need to connect, what are the priorities and strategies, primarily at the regional but national level, as well as building synergies between regional programs with elements of EU advocacy. We also participated in a regional meeting organized by Kvinna Till Kvinna on May 25. The general conclusion from this meeting was that some progress in our efforts was obvious, but insufficient. We agreed that a successful advocacy process takes time.

Our representatives participated in the workshop „Gender Action Plan III and CLIPs Serbia“ , organized by Kvinna Till Kvinna in preparation for the European Commission’s consultations with civil society organizations in the process of drafting CLIPs, as one of the steps in implementing GAP III. 1.3.3. Analysis of CLIPs from the aspect of work and experience of our organization, send written inputs for collective applications submitted by Kvinna till Kvinna to Ana Milenić (contact person for gender equality), Aleksandra Miletić (UN Women) and Ingva Engstroem (Head of EUD). cooperation).

As every year, the representative of the Roma Center for Women and Children, Daje, presented the everyday problems that Roma women face in Serbia during the week of advocacy in Brussels. Although the event was organized online, it was very successful. During the two-week preparation and active meetings with representatives of European institutions, Daje presented her presentations, talking about the most important topics – Early Marriages and Gender-Based Violence. Along the way, we mentioned the position of Romani women in society and political life, digital violence against Romani women, the SOS hotline, as well as the consequences that have further worsened the position of Romani women. All the actors were very satisfied, and with their questions they showed interest in the topic.

Draft strategy for Strategies for social inclusion of Roma men and women in the territory of the City of Belgrade for the period from 2022 to 2032

On November 29 and 30, a working and focus group was held with representatives of institutions and the Roma civil sector in the premises of the City Administration of the City of Belgrade, which was attended by a member of our team. Representatives of the Roma civil sector attended the presentation of the SWOT analysis for the drafting of the Strategy for Social Inclusion of Roma Men and Women in the City of Belgrade for the period from 2022 to 2032 and the Draft Action Plan for its implementation.

On the first day, five groups were formed whose members worked on SWOT analyzes in the field of health, employment, social protection, education and housing.

Some of the biggest threats identified in the analyzes are electronic applications for preschool education, limited access to the Internet and technical means, Kovid, not updated data on Roma settlements …

The advantages that have been identified are the existence of mobile teams for inclusion, Roma coordinators, mediators, pedagogical assistants, affirmative measures for enrollment of high school and university students, scholarships, IPA funds. All those present agreed that the introduction of new laws or regulations should not be sought, but that it should be insisted that the existing ones be applied and respected.

The realized activities are the first part of the drafting and a public debate is planned for the end of December as an event where all actors will have the opportunity to submit their proposal for supplementing and amending the Draft.

RAISING SOCIAL AWARENESS OF THE RIGHTS AND POSITION OF ROMA WOMEN

Campaign 16 days of activism against violence against women

The organization Daje marked 16 days of activism with daily posts on the FB account of the organization about violence against Roma women.

We have sent a press release to more than 50 addresses on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, which is celebrated on November 25.

On December 9, at the invitation of the Commissioner, we presented proposals for reducing discrimination against children in the Assembly and attended the presentation of a special report on discrimination against children.

On December 10, our communications manager was a guest on Kurir television in a program that was broadcast live starting at 1 p.m. The show presented the activities of RZMS as well as the research of our organization in the field of child marriages and domestic violence.

On the same date, the representative of our association Nada Djurickovic received a letter of thanks from the Civic Initiatives for her immense contribution and commitment.

MEETINGS

Members of the Daje team participated in the presentation of the planned advocacy activities of our organization and other partner organizations of the Autonomous Women’s Center at the Mark Hotel in Belgrade. Presentation activities were realized in the period 6-8. October. We advocated the topic of the existence of the Emergency Shelter and planned advocacy activities to include this service in the budget of the City of Belgrade.

Participation in the meeting with Gordana Čomić, Minister of Human and Minority Rights and Social Affairs and Dialogue. In addition to representatives of the Ministry, the meeting was attended by representatives of about 20 civil society organizations. The aim of the meeting was for CSOs working in the field of gender equality and minority rights to present today in the Ministry the problems and challenges they face and discuss possible solutions. Although we believe that the ministry’s efforts are to initiate and maintain a dialogue with civil society organizations, it seems that these goals have been achieved only at the declarative level, while significant cooperation and changes based on that are lacking.

Participation in the meeting on the occasion of the International Roma Day in the municipality of Voždovac with the president of that municipality and members of the board. On that occasion, we received a promise that more work will be done and investments will be made in the inclusion of Roma and the non-governmental sector that deals with Roma issues in the decision-making process in Voždovac.

On the occasion of the Day of Remembrance for Women Victims of Violence, a round table called „Femicide in Serbia“ was held, as part of the campaign „Do you know what femicide is?“.

„The topic of the round table is the discussion on the prevention of femicide on the occasion of today – the Day of Remembrance of Women Victims of Violence, which is marked due to multiple violence against women.

TRAINING

Members of the Roma Center Daje held a training on October 18, 19, 21 and 22 on the topic – Strengthening the capacity of the organization to monitor public advocacy in the field of gender equality to members of the United Roma Network against Violence. Respecting the epidemiological recommendations, we realized the training in different places: Zemun Polje, Smederevska Palanka, Zvezdara and Veliki Mokri Lug. We first introduced them to the concept of public advocacy, analyzed the situation in Roma settlements and discussed possible advocacy in the future. The topic of the training was the introduction to the CEDAV report as well as the Istanbul Convention. We have devoted part of the introduction to Chapters 23 and 24, as well as the Action Plan. Finally, we taught them how to collect, classify, and present relevant data to the public, for the purpose of advocacy.

Attending the #HerNetHerRights digital security training brought more knowledge and experience to team members in this area. Based on the topics covered, such as risk identification and how to react in case of the same, there was an exchange of experiences among the participants. – In August, a three-day public advocacy training was held for members of the Roma Center for Women and Children „Daje“ and members of the United Roma Women Against Violence Network. Through the training held in Vrujici, we increased the knowledge and skills necessary for public advocacy of Roma women in Serbia.

MEMBERSHIP AND ACTIVITIES IN NETWORKS

The organization is a member of the network of Women Against Violence, Women’s Roma Network, Women in Black and Women, Peace, Security. The organization is a member of the international WAVE network. The lawyer of our organization became part of the WAVE legal team.

Also, the organization actively cooperates with the League for the Roma Decade. During the state of emergency, a representative of the organization participated once a week in meetings of the League Crisis Staff, where she distributed information on the situation of women during the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and actively participated in drafting measures, with special focus on the needs of Roma women. .

The organization coordinates the work of the informal network of the United Roma Against Violence. In order to make support services available to as many Roma women survivors of male violence as possible, Daje supported in 2017 the establishment of new Roma women’s organizations that deal with the prevention and fight against gender-based violence. The idea of founding new Roma women’s organizations was born during workshops organized by Daje activists with Roma women from Roma settlements in Belgrade, which, among other things, were aimed at encouraging women’s independence, improving their decision-making power in the family and community, and empowering encouraging them to engage independently and actively in the fight for their rights. At that time, a number of workshop participants had the need and desire to self-organize and to fight together against gender-based violence. In addition to great enthusiasm and motivation, women from Roma settlements did not have the resources and independent capacity to establish organizations, so the organization Daje focused part of its activities on supporting women in founding their own associations, and continued cooperation with them within the informal network of United Roma Women against violence, which was founded in 2018.

Initially, it was planned that the network would include only newly established associations from the territory of Belgrade, but due to the interest of Roma women from other cities to join, it was extended to Kragujevac, Kostolac and Smederevska Palanka. The network currently has 11 member organizations: Roma Center for Women and Children Daje, Belgrade – Voždovac; Women’s Roma Center Nada, Belgrade – Zvezdara; Center for Mothers Aurora MINE, Belgrade-Zvezdara; Center for Women and Children Victoria, Belgrade-Zemun field; Integrative Global Center, Kragujevac; Successful Women, Kostolac; Roma Association of Women of the Braničevo District RUŽ, Kostolac; Roma Progress, Belgrade – Palilula; De Andre, Belgrade – Zemun; Center for Creative Development, Lazarevac and Center for Development of Roma Community Amaro Drom, Smederevska Palanka.

The goals of establishing and cooperating women’s Roma organizations within the United Roma Women Against Violence Network are multiple. Thanks to the active cooperation of activists of the Roma Center for Women and Children Daje and activists of member organizations of the network, it has been possible for services for women who have survived gender-based violence to be available to more Roma women. Activists from the member organizations of the network are experts for their local communities, they live and work in Roma settlements and are in daily contact with neighbors, friends, acquaintances who are in a situation of violence, who inform about the services of Daje and direct them to support. and help. They are currently intermediaries between the Daja Roma Center and local Roma communities, facilitating the entry of activists into settlements controlled by „settlement chiefs“, and helping to establish a relationship of trust and open communication with beneficiaries. Also, thanks to continuous communication with activists from the field, the organization Daje has access to authentic information about living conditions and problems of Roma women, which it informs other stakeholders, and which is the basis for planning services and activities of the organization. Thanks to the United Roma Women Against Violence Network, the number of women who are motivated and empowered to become actively involved in the fight for their rights is increasing.

In the reporting period, it provided continuous support to the member organizations of the network, primarily in the form of information, exchange of knowledge and experience, mentoring support, as well as through material support.

Also, the Roma Center for Women and Children Daje financially supported activists of Roma women’s organizations from the United Roma Against Violence Network to get involved in trainings and trainings to strengthen personal and professional capacities .

During 2021, the Roma Center for Women and Children „Daje“ materially and consultatively helped to establish a new Roma women’s association: the Association of Citizens „Council of Tenants of the Sutjeska Block – Kotež“.

CAPACITY IMPROVEMENT

During 2021, members of the team of the Roma Center for Women and Children Daje participated in various trainings, which are important for the personal and professional development of our activists, and for improving the capacity of the organization.

Team members participated in the following trainings:

-Training for social service providers for victims of gender-based violence, through 4 full-day online workshops attended by psychological associations. The training is accredited and organized by the Victimology Center .

– In the previous period, a total of three psychological workshops were held in the premises of the Roma Daje organization, led by the facilitator Lepa Mlađenović.

The overall goal of the workshops is to create cohesion between the new members of the Daje team. With this training, the members of the Daje team also improved the quality of work with users, as well as encouraged their personal and professional capacities to communicate and provide support. In other words, these activities have strengthened the team spirit and the experience of community among team members. After the training, the members are empowered to communicate openly, share their professional doubts, and simultaneously seek mutual support and common solutions.

– Online discussions on the topic – The position and rights of Roma men and women in the territory of Vojvodina were attended by psychologists and lawyers of the organization. At the time of the pandemic, it was established how much discrimination there was, since Roma settlements did not receive help like everyone else.

A representative of the National Employment Service spoke up, and said that vacancies are announced every year in which they have special programs for vulnerable groups.

ideas and meetings will be forwarded by e-mail .

ORGANIZATIONAL RESPONSE TO THE CRISIS CAUSED BY THE KOVID-19 VIRUS

The organization provided SOS counseling services for women experiencing violence through three hotlines. Also, the organization provided legal information services for women with experience of violence and support in the process of exercising rights at institutions. During 2021, Roma activists, members of the Network, were in contact with their fellow citizens from settlements in Belgrade, Kostolac, Smederevska Palanka and Kragujevac, and submitted reports to our organization on the problems and challenges that Roma women face. Based on the received reports, further activities are planned – informing other relevant stakeholders, informing users, SOS consultations and other services.
