My lawyer – free and professional legal aid for an effectice access to rights for migrants

About the project

Since autumn 2017, Montenegro has been increasingly affected by migration along the so-called “coastal route” (Albania-Montenegro-Bosnia and Herzegovina). Although most migrants only pass through the country, a number decide to stay and seek asylum. In addition to migrants from the third countries, the country also faces the challenge of reintegrating a large number of returnees, its citizens who moved abroad illegally for economic reasons and later got deported to the country. The need for legal, humanitarian and psychological support in protection of rights and securing access to support services for these categories is constant.

This project aims to contribute to the improvement of the migration management system in Montenegro in line with the international human rights standards.

It is expected to help improve the access to rights for different categories of migrants through the provision of legal aid, information and counseling, humanitarian aid and psycho-social support. Also, it will strengthen capacities of local civil society organizations and relevant institutions in the implementation of migration management policy – processes of integration of foreigners granted asylum, i.e. reintegration of returnees upon readmission.

Implemented by the NGO Monitor Center for Media and Democracy, with an aim to help reducing the level of peer violence against Roma youth. In order to raise awareness of peer violence against members of the Roma community, this sub-grant included production of several research articles. In the research process were also involved journalists from the Roma portal “Romalitika”.
