Serbia > Contacts
last update: July 2015
There are very few non-governmental organizations working with refugees. There is no non-governmental organization working with undocumented migrants, the focus is on asylum seekers. The most prominent organizations include:
- APC – Asylum protection centre (http://www.apc-cza.org/) – has offered free legal advice to asylum seekers since the creation of the Serbian asylum system in 2008. They also provide programs of psycho-social assistance to asylum seekers. If the police refuses to give you the 72-hours-paper (potvrda o izrazenoj nameri za trazenje azila: expression of an intention to seek asylum) you can contact them, go to their office, express this intention there and you’ll get a statement of them with which the police shouldn’t refuse to give you this paper.
- BCHR – Belgrade Centre for Human Rights (http://www.bgcentar.org.rs/ -- see also their website about asylum, including information for asylum seekers in English, French, Russian, Farsi, Pashto and Arabic: http://azil.rs/) – has also been offering free legal and psychological help to asylum seekers, since the beginning of 2012.
- Infomobile Serbia - a non-hierarchal, non-profit, self-organized network of no-border activists. The aim of the group, on the one hand, is to support migrants by organizing migrant solidarity actions and on the other hand to document the situation of migrants and police harassment in Serbia. Fighting for a freedom of movement and settlement for all, against all border regimes and “migration management”.
