Draft Amendments to the Law on Youth

The former Ministry of Youth and Sport of the Republic of Serbia announced the drafting of Amendments to the Law on Youth in June 2021. A working group was formed to ensure the representation of all relevant subjects of youth policy and prepare the draft.

The main objectives  and  targets to which Amendments to the Law should apply are:

  • Improving the system of selection and financing of programmes and projects of public interest in the field of youth sector;
  • Improving the coordination of youth policy stakeholders in conducting youth policy and monitoring the state in the field;
  • Improving the national register of youth associations and unions.

The Ministry  launched a broad consultative process regarding the draft, by having organized roundtables in 6 cities in Serbia by September 2021 that  included representatives of the youth sector. The Ministry also provided an opportunity for young people to submit comments, suggestions and questions electronically and announced future public hearings on the subject.

However, this process wasn't continued in 2022. Next working group meeting was held in 2023 in coordination of the current Ministry, Ministry of Tourism and Youth. News about the draft of the document and possible public consultations is yet to come.
