Legally Invisible Persons – Still without a Solution

Through publications issued in 2008 and 2009, Praxis strived to point to the difficult position of persons who legally do not exist and to make visible the problems of those who are themselves invisible before the law. At the same time, Praxis pointed to the obligation of the State to take over the responsibility for solving the problems of persons who are not registered in birth registry book – legally invisible persons – and to regulate with precision the procedure of subsequent registration in birth registry book while bearing in mind the specific characteristics of the Roma community whose members face difficulties when registering in birth registry book. The report Legally Invisible Persons in Serbia – Still without a Solution represents Praxis’ latest efforts to once again point to the problem of legally invisible persons through actual cases from practice.
