  1. Meet the Project Manager: MAP16 project to reduce child labour and forced labour in Serbia

    18 August 2022

    Milica Djordjevic, ILO National Project Coordinator of the MAP16 project, funded by the US Department of Labor, explains what she does to reduce child labour and forced labour in Serbia. Child labour means that children are too young for their work or it is harmful for them. The ILO has been supporting governments for decades to address their child labour concerns, always tailoring interventions to local needs. In 2017, the ILO and its partners came out with a strategy which defines country priorities. In addition, the ILO conducted a national survey in 2021 which shows that 9.5% of children in Serbia are in child labour, mainly in agriculture. The ILO trained about 400 professionals (social workers, police, prosecutors and labour inspectors) to identify child labour situations. Checklists, tools and standards are at their disposal to tackle cases. The decree on hazardous child labour was adopted so that children in child labour or forced labour can receive immediate assistance.
