          • Analysis of the Legal Framework regulating the Security and Intelligence System of the Republic of Serbia

          • In this study the author Bogoljub Milosavljević provides a comprehensive review of the legal framework that governs the security-intelligence system of Serbia, points out the shortcomings of the legal framework, and offers recommendations for their elimination.

        • The publication presents:

          • how is each of the Serbian security services organized, its jurisdictions and authorizations;
          • what is the legal framework for monitoring and control over the services, as well as the responsibility for lawful and proper operations;
          • the ways in which their work should be guided, harmonized and coordinated;
          • how are relations between services and entities that manage the intelligence and security system legally regulated.

          The study consists of three sections.

          The first section provides an overview of the current situation and the important features of the legal regulation of the security-intelligence system.

          The second section provides basic findings concerning main institutes and important decisions relating to this system, while the third section provides a special emphasis on the gaps in some decisions that ought to be eliminated. 

          In addition, the study outlines two priority issues in this field: the drafting of a new basic law on the regulation of the security services and the drafting of a new law on Security Information Agency (BIA).

          Publication of this study was kindly supported by The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Belgrade, in the framework of the project “LEGASI - Towards Legislative Reform of Security Intelligence System”. The opinions expressed in the publication are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the State of the Netherlands.
