Holistic report on monitoring of rights of persons with disabilities in Republic of Serbia represents comprehensive review of the position of people with disabilities in Serbia, uniting the three elements of holistic monitoring: monitoring of individual experiences, systemic monitoring and media monitoring. Based on the monitoring of individual experience and interviews with 60 persons with disabilities, through qualitative analysis, 5 „hot areas“ have been where discrimination and denial of rights occur the most often. These are: accessibility – physical and information and communication, welfare system, education, work and employment and health protection. These areas have been analyzed in three aspects: individual experiences, model of media reporting in these areas and legislation.
