Maksimovic, Jelena
May 2009
Transitions Online;5/25/2009, p6
The article reports that the passage of an anti-discrimination law has created deep divisions in Serbian society. The supporters of the law see it as crucial to Serbia's linking its human rights protections with European Union (EU) law and a step toward eventual EU membership, but critics say it undermines the traditional values of Serbs. Although acts of discrimination are prohibited by existing laws, the new legislation is the first to provide a broad definition of discrimination.
