Performance of Western Balkan Economies Regarding the European Pillar of Social Rights: 2022 review on Serbia
Serbia’s overall progress regarding the indicators is rather moderate. While performance in the fields of equal opportunities, fair working conditions, and social protection and inclusion remains below the EU average, progress in legislation is noticeable and largely carried out in line with the EU Acquis. For instance, the Law on Social Cards enacted in April 2022 is expected to reduce the at-risk-of-poverty rate. Furthermore, the Law of Social Entrepreneurship adapted in 2022 is expected to improve the situation on the labour market for vulnerable groups of population.
