Dear Ms Asher, If we talk about Serbia, you may find interesting the following information: 1. UNICEF, UNESCO, Open society Serbia and Open Institute Hungary supported an evaluation of the Civic education in elementary and high schools in Serbia (that was introduced as an optional subject in 2001). The evaluation was conducted by Alan Smith, Susan Fountain and Hugh McLean. If you are interested to have the whole document, you can contact the Ministry of education of Serbia or UNICEF Belgrade office (Ms Svetlana Marojevic, email@example.com). 2. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Belgrade office is supporting an expert consultation for mainstreaming human rights education in primary and secondary schools in Serbia. The general purpose of this consultancy is to provide assistance to the Ministry of Education in Serbia for better introducing of human rights into all programming in elementary and secondary schools. The UNHCHR has engaged Ms Nevena Vuckovic Sahovic for this consultancy (President of the Child Rights Centre Belgrade and Member of the Child Rights Committee). We expect the report to be completed by the end of January. Based on conclusions and recommendations, the Child Rights Centre should develop kind of tool (indicators) for introducing and monitoring of human rights principles in education system (methods, cirrucula, in-service training, etc.).
