Partners Serbia Activities in the Field of Personal Data Protection

This website is developed by Partners for Democratic Change Serbia (Partners Serbia) in cooperation with The Network of the Committees for Human Rights in Serbia (CHRIS), within the project „Personal  Data Protection as a Basic Human Right“. The project is supported by the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia and the Fund for an Open Society in Serbia.

Protection of privacy still represents a relatively new concept in Serbia. Although the right to protection of personal data is one of the basic human rights guaranteed by the Constitution, the basic legal framework in the Republic of Serbia was established in October 2008, with the adoption of the Law on Personal Data Protection (the Law). This Law introduces a broad range of duties for a large number of subjects.

Partners Serbia developed this website to open public discussion on importance of protection of privacy in modern society and to raise citizens’ awareness about the existing mechanisms of protection of privacy and personal data. Moreover, this website may be of use for personal data controllers to learn about their duties as stipulated by relevant legislation. This web page is available to public from 28th of January 2013.

From November 2010, Partners Serbia took an active part in promoting the right to privacy, awareness raising and capacity building of data controllers and civil society organizations for effective implementation of the Law and the protection of personal data in accordance with the highest international standards. Through cooperation of Partners Serbia with the office of the Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection and other organizations, several projects have been conducted and a series of activities performed.
