Council of Europe Anti-Racism Commission to prepare first report on Montenegro

Strasbourg, 8.03.2011 - A delegation of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) visited Montenegro from 7 to 10 February 2011, as the first step in the preparation of a monitoring report. During its visit, ECRIs delegation gathered information on the situation regarding racism, racial discrimination (i.e. discrimination on grounds of “race”, colour, citizenship, national/ethnic origin, religion and language), xenophobia, antisemitism and intolerance in Montenegro.

The delegation held meetings in Podgorica and Ulcinj with representatives of all relevant ministries and other competent authorities, human rights NGOs and minority groups.

Following this visit, ECRI will adopt its first report on Montenegro in which it will make recommendations on measures to be taken by the authorities in the fields within ECRI’s mandate. Among these, three will be revisited in two years’ time as part of an interim follow-up procedure.

ECRI is a human rights body of the Council of Europe, composed of independent experts, which monitors problems of racism and intolerance, prepares reports and issues recommendations to member states. For more information on ECRI: www.coe.int/ecri
