This paper aims to provide an overview of Serbian civil society involvement in development cooperation, as well as development education and awareness raising. As Serbia started the European Union (EU) accession negotiations in January 2014, it is expected to align its legislation with the EU body of laws, also called the acquis communautaire. Chapter 30 of the EU acquis deals with external relations and includes legislation with regards to the provision of development and humanitarian aid to developing countries. During the EU accession process, Serbia will also go from being a recipient of Official Development Assistance (ODA) to becoming a donor country.
