The Regional GAP Assessment on the current situation in service provision for migrants and the future desirable state has been developed in order to identify the discrepancies between the current situation in service provision for migrants and the future desirable state in Albania, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, North Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia. Very few analyses of this kind exist in the countries in the region, and none at the regional level.
This results in the lack of knowledge of the real needs of the migrant target group and the problems they face every day which leads to a wide range of discrimination and violations of their human rights in all segments. Therefore, the Gap Assessment does not only pinpoint the discrepancies between the current situation and the desired one, but it also offers potential solutions and lays out the tasks needed to overcome the existing gap.
The Regional GAP Assessment has been prepared through desktop research, interviews with relevant stakeholders, analysis of compiled data, and identifying current gaps. With such a holistic approach, the Regional GAP Assessment identifies gaps in terms of existing services, beneficiary needs, quality and standardization of the services, allocation of the funds for the services, and at the end, offered the solutions and determined the tasks needed to be completed to close this gap.
