Summary of GSA Annual Report for 2014

Posted by GSA March 26, 2015
Summary of GSA Annual Report for 2014
– REPORT SUMMARY-

In regards to the main conclusions of the Report, 2014 in Serbia was generally dynamic and significant for the position of LGBT people and their human rights status and there has been recorded a certain progress in this area. First of all, successful maintenance of the Pride Parade should be pointed out, but the other progresses in the relation of political factors and government institutions towards LGBT issue as well. Also, by comparing the data with those of previous years by standardized methodology, in 2014 GSA has not recorded an increase in cases of violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity that had been reported to this organization, but, on the contrary, their slight decrease. The very structure of the reported cases shows a somewhat different trend compared to the previous year, so it has been a decrease in the number of cases of physical assault, attempted assault and threats of violence, while the number of cases of domestic violence (perpetrated by parents and other close relatives of LGBT people) and domestic violence in same-sex relationships are on the increase.
However, according to many indicators, LGBT population remains one of the social groups that are most exposed to violence and intolerance in society. In addition to the continuity of protection and improvement of existing human rights including the right of freedom to assembly, more efficient work of the institutions, better implementation of existing laws and bringing of new legislation, primarily in the area of regulation of property rights and other rights to same-sex partnerships, one of the biggest challenges in the future period, both for institutions and for the LGBT movement in Serbia, will be the work with the citizens i.e. the work on the positive social change and on increasing tolerance in the society.
