WHERE Neighborhood of Ledine is located on the edge of New Belgrade /distant outskirts of Belgrade/. The settlement is multiethnic and has about 10,000 inhabitants, consisted of approx 40% Serbs, 40% Roma and 20% members of other ethnic groups. The social status of the community is very modest. Settlement suffers from numerous communal, social and cultural issues. In addition to the ubiquitous omnipresent economic crisis, settlements of this type have also born a great burden of the rapid rise of population due to enormous economic and political migrations during last decades (caused by the political turbulences in the 1990s)
