Projects of the Protector of Citizens - Ombudsman

One of them is in the National Minority Protection Department and concerns Roma mediation addressing human rights issues before the executive authorities. The second is in the Children’s Rights Protection Department and concerns educating high school students on human rights and minority issues in innovative ways (e.g. theatre workshops, shooting movies, an online competition in a human rights Facebook-based game, speakers’ corners on public events, etc). The third project is in the field of democracy and media freedoms and concerns issues such as rule of law, freedom od speech and corruption.
