    • Seventh Research Seminar on Measuring SSR in Western Balkans held: focus on judicial control

    •  
    • Date: 17 December 2010

      In Kolasin, in the organization of the Center for Democracy and Human Rights (CEDEM) sixth research seminar of the project “Capacity Building of Civil Society in the Western Balkans for mapping and monitoring of security sector reform” was held from 14 to 17 December 2010.

      Guest speaker of the sixth seminar was Professor at the University of Durham Ian Leigh, who helped in the implementation of the workshop on the criteria of judicial control including further elaboration of guidelines for researchers and the definition of this field of observation. In his career, Leigh has so far commented for parliaments in the UK, Canada, Russia and Ukraine draft legislation appearing before the committees for security and defense. The report he wrote with Hans Born, “Making Intelligence Accountable” was published by the Norwegian Parliament Printing House in seven languages in 2005.

      Another milestone achieved at the seminar are the final thoughts, comments and remarks for the criteria rule of law, parliamentary oversight, representativeness and control and oversight of independent state institutions.

      The context analysis of security sector reform in the Western Balkans will be presented in March following year in Sarajevo as the first product of the project. Meanwhile, contributions are expected from external consultants as well, who are to assist the work on the development of the remaining criteria, including definitions of fields of observation, guidelines and the research reports.
