Second meeting for the analysis of the Constitutional Law on the Rights of National Minorities (CARNM)

The second meeting for CARNM analysis was held in the premises of ILC on 17 March 2017.

The meeting was attended by elected representatives of the Roma, Serbian, Albanian and Ukrainian national minorities  from Brod-Posavina County and the city of Slavonski Brod and by the representatives of Roma CSOs.

During the meeting, professor Lauc commented the information provided by members of national minorities in relation to their position in Brod-Posavina County which will be incorporated in the analysis. As noted in his presentation, all the provided information lacks statistical indicators  which are necessary in order to assess the real situation. He added that it would be useful to incorporate measurable data contained in  the census or data available to elected councils and representatives of national minorities in the final version of the  analysis. Participants of the meeting commented that the data collected in the last census is not the most competent because it does not reflect the real situation, at least concerning the number of members of national minorities in Brod-Posavina County.

The second meeting for the  CARNM analysis was organized by ILC in collaboration with project partners - HILS from Osijek, Brod – Posavina County and the Network of Roma CSOs in Croatia through the "Legal inclusion and sustainable integration of Roma in Croatia" project which is financed by the European Union program IPA 2012 "Strengthening the capacity of civil society organizations to ensure the effective implementation of EU standards in the realization of human rights" and co – financed by the Office for Cooperation with NGOs.
