    • CCMR transfers skills on security sector monitoring to its partners in Montenegro

    •  
    • Date: 05 March 2010
      Professor Miroslav Hadžić, President of CCMR Managerial Board, and Sonja Stojanović, Director of the Centre were on March 4 and 5 in Montenegro, where they held a two-day introductory seminar with the subject of monitoring reform of the security sector. Twenty journalists, OCD activists and graduate students of Faculty of Political Science from Montenegro participated in the course.

      Seminar began with a lecture on the concept of security sector reform, which was followed by workshops where attendees were mapping legal framework, bodies in charge of internal, external control and security sector public oversight and civilian chain of command as well as management in state security institutions. Through debate on benefits and limits of different forms of police oversight, attendees were given the opportunity to meet the various models of control and oversight in democratic societies and to give their own opinions on state of control in Montenegro.

      In the last workshop on intelligence agencies oversight, attendees practiced oversight on the use of special investigative measures. This was accomplished by planning a visit of the Parliamentary Committee to the Agency for National Security (of Montenegro) and the analysis of warrant for wire-tapping so that it could be determined whether the one observed is in line with the law.

      The course was organized by CEDEM (www.cedem.me), a civil society organization from Montenegro with which the CCMR has signed an agreement on cooperation in 2008. The seminar was part of their project “Building capacities for understanding and monitoring reform of security sector”, which is supported financially by Royal Norwegian Embassy.
