In recent years, CoE action in Serbia has been substantial and has covered a wide range of issues of importance for Serbia's reform agenda. The ongoing co-operation activities in Serbia amount to €3,8 million.
The CoE's ongoing co-operation with Serbia focuses on strengthening the capacities of law enforcement and judiciary in the fight against corruption (PACS). An additional project aims to harmonise court practice and to raise judges' capacities to ensure consistent application of the ECHR (funded by Norway).
Serbia plays an active role in the regional Joint EU/CoE Programmes in the fields of promoting minority protection - including Roma, and inclusive education. The country is also a beneficiary of the CoE regional project on freedom of expression and freedom of the media (financed by Norway).
