Mission in Serbia organized a public presentation of three policy studies on police reform issues produced by Belgrade-based civil society researchers. Representatives from the Ministry of Interior, National Assembly, media and international community attended the presentation.
The policy studies covered the issues of psychological support to police officers, human rights in police education and organized crime. The Mission supported the studies to provide neutral research and quality recommendations to the Ministry of Interior (MoI) on police reform topics important to all citizens. The topics were agreed with the MoI.
This exercise also helped to build the capacity of the CSOs to develop concise policy recommendations and contribute to police reform processes in Serbia. Local experts from the Belgrade Center for Security Policy, Belgrade Center for Human Rights and Center for Policy Development and Cooperation conducted the research.
