Summary

From 10 to 11 April the OSCE Mission to Serbia, together with the Office of the Commissioner for Protection of Equality and the Ministry of Interior (MoI), organised in Sabac the first of four workshops for police officers on identifying various types of discrimination and adequately responding thereto. A total of 30 officers learned about international standards in this area, reviewed the existing national anti-discrimination legislation, including principles of gender equality in the security sector and enhanced their skills to provide adequate assistance. This activity complements the MoI’s commitment to uphold ethical principles and diversity in the work of the police. It is part of the Mission’s wider efforts to foster accountability in the relationship between the community and the police service.
