Brief Description

In 2018, the Parliament adopted the new Law on International and Temporary Protection. The law pays special attention to especially vulnerable groups in need of protection, such as pregnant women and victims of violence. At the same time, it provides Ministry of Labor and Social Policy (MoLSP) with a legal obligation to develop appropriate by-laws ensuring systematic and formal provision of social protection to these groups. In the case of emergencies, as well as within the refugee reception facilities, the MoLSP ensures 24/7 access to social workers and services to vulnerable groups.
