This round-table was the second in the continuation of the BiH Security Policy development project. As with the first round-table, the objectives of this event were to provide a forum in which participants could openly discuss aspects pertaining to the issue of the intelligence services; and to cooperate towards the formulation of conclusions and recommendations for their restructuring and reform.
In particular, the round-table focused upon the formation of intelligence services in other countries. Participants were provided with an overview of the reform of the Hungarian intelligence services, from their composition during the Cold War, towards the process of reform in a democratic society. A model from Europe was supplied by an expert from the Dutch intelligence services, which served as a concrete example of a functioning modern European intelligence service.
The round-table provided knowledge to parliamentarians and those tasked with the formulation of the BiH Security Policy, and ensured that the information supplied would work towards its comprehensive development.
