Second generation of students 2004


The Management Center provided its second anti-organised crime specialisation course in cooperation with the Royal Netherlands Government. The course gathered participants from the Serbian Ministry of the Interior, Federal Ministry of Defence, Serbian Ministry of Justice, the Law Bar and the economic sector.

Project Sava II - 2nd Year

The societal need for the project

Organised crime is arguably the greatest problem in Serbia at the moment, and thus naturally also one of the first proclaimed priorities for the new Serbian Government to tackle.

The main aim of the project

The aim of this project is educational. It is designed as a form of systematic training of young professionals who will attain the required knowledge in anti-organized crime policy, and develop the corresponding skills in the area of anti-organized crime.

Who will be trained

The main audience for this course are policy makers, judges, magistrates, prosecutors, attorneys at law and police professionals. Places fille by an open competition and decisions on acceptance to the course will be made solely on the merit-based criteria.

The content of the training

The course will equip the participants with skills and understanding of the social, economic and political environment in the region, which generates the key features of the context of fighting organized crime. The training of the initial group of participants in the course will take the form of weekly meetings at the Management Center, for lectures and workshops. There will be 26 weeks of effective teaching during course, each week consisting of 2,5 contact hours with each participant. The format of the lectures will be such as to allow an even distribution between formal teaching and interactive workshops and simulations. Lectures, delivered by experts from abroad, Serbia and Montenegro, will be followed by round table discussions, and the participants will be encouraged to engage in teamwork.
