Evaluation of the legal framework of the police sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina
The overall intention of the project is to conduct an analysis of the legal provisions of the existing police structures on all four of the different levels of government in BiH. This analysis would also contain review of previous efforts at cracking on with police reform, undertaken by a variety of international and national actors.
Moreover, this research would illustrate the possible overlap of functions and duties the different police agencies have under current legal policy framework. The duplication of jurisdiction, or an unclear mandate, could be identified as the root causes of inefficiency amongst the different police agencies in BiH in terms of carrying out their basic functions, and also presents the obstacle on the road of achieving EU set standards that would result in BiH being a fully fledged member of EU. Our goal is to find obstacles in legal framework of police structures in Bosnia and Herzegovina and advocate changes that have to be made in order to increase efficiency. The intricate set up of policing structures does create an impact on its overall functioning and efficiency, and at best, it just undermines its service delivery to the population of BiH, which is its core function.
Fostering Parliamentary Oversight of the Security Sector in Western Balkans
The Report on Parliamentary Oversight of Security Sector (the Report) is the main product of the Cooperation Agreement between DCAF and the Associated Implementation Partner, as follows:
- Analytica from Macedonia;
- Centre for Security Studies from Bosnia and Herzegovina;
- Institut Alternativa from Montenegro; and
- Kosovar Centre for Security Studies from Kosovo.
The Report will be instrumental in the elaboration by DCAF of the yearly Monitoring and Evaluation Report on the Framework Project „Fostering Parliamentary Oversight of the Security Sector in Western Balkans.“ Also, the annual report will include four quarterly reports of associated implementation partner with an overview of the most important national events relevant to the democratic governance of the security sector in each of four country in Western Balkan.
The Report on Parliamentary Oversight of Security Sector will assess the performance of Parliament in the democratic oversight of security over the year 2012. The assessment will observe clear criteria, derived from the basic functions of a parliamentary institution (representation, legislation, oversight) and from the conditions that empower parliament to fulfil these basic functions (legal authority, institutional capacity and political will).
Support to institutional building of PSOTC in increasing their capacities for smooth transition to local ownership
Project title ‘Support to institutional building of PSOTC in increasing their capacities for smooth transition to local ownership’ is supporting through the generous contribution of Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The main objective of the project is to strengthen PSOTC in their capacity building in order of facilitating a smooth transition from international to local ownership. The preparation of human resources is an important prerequisite for smooth transition and significant attention will be devoted to strengthening of their capacities. The specific objective of the project will be devoted to development of new modules/courses that are relevant to the PSO in order to explore the levels of local ownership and practice without international support.
Security Transitions in the Western Balkans – From Conflict Zone to Security Community?
The project under the auspices of the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) aims to enhance regional cooperation and exchange knowledge between researchers from different countries in the region, as well as to strengthen through activities capacity of research organizations from the Western Balkans. This project, looking at the larger framework of transformation of the Western Balkans, will examine these strategic priorities of the Western Balkans region, by studying how the processes of democracy- and institution- building and regional cooperation contribute to the region’s transformation from a conflict zone towards a security community. For the purpose of implementation of the project the following organizations will create The Western Balkan Research Consortium;
1. Centre for Belgrade Centre for Security Policy from Serbia;
2. Analytica from Macedonia;
3. Centre for Democracy and Human Rights from Montenegro;
