Position of persons with disabilities in Serbian community in Kosovo

The report on the situation of persons with disabilities (PWDs) in the Serbian community in Kosovo has been prepared within the project “Innovation, Inclusion, Human Rights”, funded by the European Union Office in Kosovo and conducted by the Centre for Society Orientation – COD in cooperation with NGO “Future without Fear – FWF” from Štrpce.
The purpose of this report is to provide more information on the situation and needs of persons with disabilities in the Serbian community in Kosovo. The report aims to identify the key problems that the PWDs face in everyday life, as well as the existence of support services and other important factors that facilitate daily life and affect their position in society.
The report also analyses legislation, policies and programs of their implementation within the system of Kosovo institutions, as well as the review of legislation of the Republic of Serbia on which mostly Mitrovica municipality relies in its operation.
The methodology used in the preparation of the report is the approach which does not consider disability as a fixed “final condition”, but rather from the perspective of human rights, meaning that persons with disabilities are active actors of social processes. This perspective is consistent with the approach to human rights and equal opportunities to disability, emphasising the importance of equal opportunities law, the rule of law and social attitudes.
Information were collected “randomly”, through surveys and interviews with representative population of persons with disabilities from Štrpce and Mitrovica regions, without prior selection of disability category or any other criteria. This method involves random selection of DPOs and PWDs in which research activities were performed.
In addition to the analysis of the situation of persons with disabilities, the report gives recommendations in order to draw attention to key issues and problems faced by persons with disabilities as well as amending existing legislation and policies at the local level in the municipalities included by this research. Furthermore, the report proposes measures, i.e. activities necessary to ensure that persons with disabilities in the Serbian community in Kosovo enjoy full rights and freedoms effectively and on an equal basis with other citizens.
Bearing in mind the unresolved international status of Kosovo, as Kosovo is not a UN member and therefore not in a position to sign the international Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, internationally stipulated standards during the process of transition and accession are those that apply, regardless of their political status.
