    • Anti-Corruption Measures in the Defence System of Serbia - expert discussion

    •  
    • Date: 07 February 2013
      Why is it necessary to analyse corruption risks in the security sector, does new legislation for procurement in security and defence presents a safeguard against corruptive practices and where does the Ministry of Defence recognizes key risks of corruption and what can be done to reduce them – these are topics of the panel discussion BCSP is organizing on February 7, 2013.

      Library of the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (Djure Jaksica street 6, II floor) will host expert discussion "Anti-corruption measures in the Defense System of Serbia of the Republic of Serbia". The event is organised in order to open debate on the results of the first global analysis of corruption risk in defence establishments worldwide.

      Out of the 82 countries included in the analysis conducted by the Transparency International UK, Serbia found itself in the middle of the pack, with a score of D +. This mark indicates that the risk of corruption in the defense is significant, that efforts are being made to reduce the risk, but that these efforts are still not made in a systematic and methodical way.

      Since the BCSP researchers participated in the evaluation of defense system of Serbia, on the recommendation of Transparency Serbia (TS), while the Ministry of Defence published in late 2012. its own comments on the research, representatives of these three institutions will participate in the expert discussion.

      This event will open space for detailed analysis of the research and its key findings for Serbia, but also about the best anti-corruption practices and possibilities of their implementation in Serbia’s defence system.

      Speakers at the event will be:

      • Nemanja Nenadic, Program Director, Transparency Serbia
      • Milan S. Milutinovic, Adviser in the Defence Policy Department, Republic of Serbia Ministry of Defence
      • Predrag Petrovic, Executive Director, BCSP
      • Marko Savkovic, Researcher, BCSP
