The Centre for Security Studies in cooperation with Joint Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of BiH for the Oversight of the Work of the Intelligence Security Agency of BiH, and the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) organized a seminar called “Intelligence Sector Reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina – a Five Year Perspective“. The seminar was held in Sarajevo in the building of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The aim of the seminar was to create an open forum for debate on intelligence affairs in Bosnia and Herzegovina and to introduce participants with the work of the intelligence services, the historical background of intelligence services, their position in the security system, and their role in combating contemporary threats. Also, significant attention was devoted to the democratic control of intelligence work, as well as to the role of the parliament, media and civil society in conducting adequate oversight.

Speakers at the event were distinguished international and local experts in the field of intelligence work. Participants included representatives of legislative and executive authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, representatives of the international community, NGOs, media and students of postgraduate studies.
