Between April and 1 November 2011, the City of Belgrade authorities carried out at least five forced evictions. Most of these evictions have affected Romani people in informal settlements.

Forced evictions are unlawful under international human rights law. Instead of acting in accordance with its international obligations, the Serbian government has failed to stop continuing violations of the right to adequate housing by the City of Belgrade authorities. The only way to stop the forced evictions is to prohibit them under Serbian law.
