Increased perception of political discrimination

Citizens believe that poor people, Roma, homeless, persons with disabilities and political dissidents are to the largest extent exposed to discrimination, as the findings of the public opinion research about discrimination, which Centre for Civic Education (CCE) has presented today, indicated.

‘In overall, citizens are familiar with concept of discrimination, but there is plenty of space for improvement of informing and knowledge about this occurrence, as quarter of respondents does not know or has no attitude about this issue‘, emphasized Petar Djukanovic, Human Rights Programme Coordinator, during the presentation. He pointed out that the most common associations to discrimination remain rejection or exclusion from community, making differences/non-respect of personality and jeopardizing/deprivation of human rights, as it was also in 2016, but that in 2019, recognition of material differences is in increase.
