Serbia hosts around 5,400 new asylumseekers and refugees, over 26,500 refugees and 199,600 IDPs from the ex-Yugoslavia region, and some 2,000 persons at risk of statelessness. Persons in need of international protection amongst newly arriving third country nationals (around 28,500 since the beginning of the year) are supported in requesting and being granted asylum and local integration. Most displaced from the region have found solutions, while cases and threat of statelessness have been reduced. UNHCR continues to support the Government in strengthening the national asylum system and in securing sustainable developmental and institutional protection and solutions. Working with Partners UNHCR Serbia enjoys close cooperation with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, of Labour, Employment, Veteran, and Social Affairs, of Internal Affairs, of Public Administration and Local Self-Government, with the Serbian Commissariat for Refugees and Migration (SCRM) as well as with local authorities.
