The report "Discrimination Against Sexual Minorities in Education and Housing: Evidence from Two Field Experiments in Serbia", documents, for the first time, experimental evidence of discrimination against LGBTI people in access to education and housing in Serbia.
These are just two of many important steps in the life of all people, including an LGBTI person, each with unique impacts on their social and economic lives.
According to the survey results, 7th grade boys that were perceived to be gay were three times as likely to be refused enrolment into a primary school (even though primary education is compulsory and refusal is prohibited by law). And even when those boys were accepted into a school, they met with twice as much hesitation and delay by school administrators in accepting their enrolment.
