About publication

Editor: Ana Vujošević

Publishing year: 2015

Cases of discrimination, intolerance and violations of the rights of citizens are not rare in Montenegro, but are rarely adequately prosecuted, despite the existence of numerous institutions dealing with development of policies and legal framework for protection of human rights. Human rights are one of the programme pillars of the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) and the Civic Initiatives (CI) from Belgrade, who have so far conducted numerous successful projects in the area of education for human rights, campaigns for raising public awareness, initiatives for amendment of legislation, etc. This was a basis of a joint project Fast Forward Human Rights! Through this project CCE and CI have continued qualitatively developing the existing programmes, with the financial support of the European Union and within the framework of the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights 2013 (EIDHR), from November 2013 to January 2015, but have also introduced some new answers to the need of providing a more effective contribution to the development of the culture of human rights in Montenegro.

The publication is a part of the project «Fast Forward Human Rights» implemented by Centre for Civic Education (CCE) in cooperation with Civic Initiatives (CI) from Belgrade, with financial support of the EU Delegation to Montenegro.
