The Study is raising some of the most important issues that some 30,000 people residing in this area, are facing.
It is estimated that nearly a half of entire Roma and Egyptian population and some 3,000 of refuges/displaced (the most vulnerable categories of population in Montenegro) are residing in Konik .
The Study consist of two separate Reports:
1. The Report on the Legal Status of persons living in the area of the Konik camp, with recommendations for its improvement - which covers the issues on regulating refugees' legal status in Montenegro.Download: English /0.6MB/ Montenegrin /0.7MB/
2. Study on Durable Solutions for Konik Residents - determining and addressing the sectors’ specific challenges (education, health, social, employment, etc) and defining the priority actions and recommendations which once implemented could lead towards positive changes.
