Serbia: Independent journalists continue to face intimidation, threats, and violence. Pro-government media continues to smear campaigns against independent journalists and outlets who report critically on the government. War crimes prosecutions remain slow, inefficient, and marred by delays. A pan-European pride parade in Belgrade took place with police protection, despite authorities having banned it, underscoring the precarious situation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.

Kosovo: Progress on accountability for war time abuses remains slow although a special court establish to cases has started trying cases. Journalists face attacks, harassment, and threats with a poor state response. Domestic violence survivors continue to face obstacles to obtaining protection. The UN has yet to provide individual compensation to Roma, Ashkali, and Balkan Egyptian victims of now-closed lead contaminated refugee camps in Northern Kosovo managed by the UN.
