Roma Early Childhood Inclusion Serbia Report (2012)
The Roma Early Childhood Inclusion (RECI) Serbia report concerns the situation of young Romani children and their families in the Republic of Serbia. Serbia has undertaken a process of social inclusion, which implies the development of policies, institutional frameworks and methodologies for enabling social inclusion as one of the essential requirements of the EU accession process. As a result of the democratic changes in Serbia the situation of Roma people has changed somewhat and early childhood services are receiving more attention. However, although Roma are the largest and the most vulnerable national minority in the country, reliable data on Roma populations do not exist. The importance of early childhood development as a crucial age to invest in and grow the country’s future social capital is just beginning to emerge.
