    • Why Security Services Reform Should Be a Mandatory Part of EU Membership Negotiations?

    •  
    • Date: 04 June 2019

      What are the mechanisms of capturing security-intelligence services, how are they used for capturing other sectors and why this problem deserves greater attention within eurointegrations - these are the topics of the discussion that will be organized on June 4, 2019, starting at 10:00 at the Media Centre (Grand Hall, 2nd floor, Terazije 3, Belgrade)..

      Discussion about following issues will also be opened at the event:

      • What can we learn from the example of security-intelligence services misuse in North Macedonia?
      • Why did the security-intelligence service in Montenegro escape reform, even though this state has become a NATO member and is advancing in EU membership negotiations?
      • Is the development of special reports (so-called Priebe report) the most suitable way for addressing the politization in the most important sectors in Montenegro and Serbia?
      • What are the consequences of neglecting the security-intelligence services reform in the process of eurointegrations and why it is necessary to include it in the areas that are the subject of negotiations and form the basis EU’s assessment of the progress of the countries in the region?

      Answers to these questions will be offered by:
