On 27 February, as a joint project between the Mission to Skopje, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy and the Ministry of the Internal Affairs, Mission representatives attended the launch of the Mission-supported project entitled, “Persons without Documents” in Strumica.
The aim of the project is to promote awareness in the police service on the security aspects of non-documentation, while at the same time encouraging better understanding between police and Roma in areas of common concern. As part of the project, a manual as well as flyers regarding the issue of persons without identity documents were produced and distributed. On 3 March, the representatives of the Mission to Skopje attended the second launch of the project, which took place in Stip. Six additional launches of the project are planned to take place in the remaining Sectors for Internal Affairs.
