    • US Air War College delegation has visited the Centre

    •  
    • Date: 14 March 2011
      During a study visit to Serbia, a delegation of the Air War College paid a visit to the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy. Over the course of four days, lieutenant colonels and colonels training in this elite postgraduate school also visited the Ministry of Defence, the General Staff and Air Force and Air Defence Command of the Serbian Armed Forces and the Faculty of Political Science in Belgrade.

       

      Each year, 240 students enroll at the Air War College, which is a part of the US Department of Defence. Half of them come from the US Air Force, one quarter from affiliated branches, while the last quarter of seats is reserved for the best international candidates. An intensive one-year master course at this college, located in the Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama, prepares the students to be senior leaders for strategic-level employment of air, space and cyberspace forces.

      Since they are required to produce a final paper for their master studies, Air War College students used their visit to the Centre to familiarize themselves with the security sector reform in Serbia and the prospects for stabilization in the Western Balkans. They expressed special interest in the public image of institutions, e.g. how well they are accepted in the general public; how deep-rooted is corruption in the Serbian security sector; is Serbia indeed the leader in the region of Western Balkans; and finally, has Serbia made any progress in combating discrimination of minorities and other vulnerable groups. The Centre’s research staff tried to answer all of these questions.
