Proposed amendments to the Law on Changes and Amendments to the Law on Social Protection seriously jeopardize the interests of users and beneficiaries of social protection services, limiting basic human rights and introducing forced labor, as the social protection system is centralized contrary to the recommendations of the European Commission on the decentralization of the social welfare system protection. The aforementioned law stipulates financial social assistance and gives widespread powers to the centers for social work.

For this reason, the group of civil society organizations consisting of Trag Foundation, Autonomous Women's Center, Crta, A11, European Movement in Serbia, ASTRA, Initiative for Development and Cooperation, Civic Initiatives, SeCons - Development Initiative Group, National Coalition for Decentralization, Foundation Center for Democracy, has initiated the withdrawal from the procedure of the Law on Amendments to the Law on Social Protection.

By the deadline for sending comments, this initiative was signed by 506 civil society organizations and citizens.
