    • Dusan Radivojevic is a new member of BCSP research team

    •  
    • Date: 02 December 2013
      New member of BCSP policy research team Dusan Radivojevic will be mostly engaged in the area of accountability and integrity in security sector.

      Radivojevic’s engagement with BCSP is realized within the Think Tank Young Professional Development Program, which starts from December 2013 and lasts for six months. Throughout this period, he will work full-time at the BCSP office, engage in ongoing policy research projects and develop concrete policy product in agreement with senior BCSP staff, which will be considered the mentor.

      Radivojevic is especially interested in tackling the problem of confidential procurement in Serbian Information Agency and its progress in implementing the integrity plan.

      „I am interested in comparing how Serbia and other countries have identified and tackled corruption risks in their respective integrity plans. This way I will be able to recognize the best practice in the area and then produce policy paper with practical policy recommendation“, said Radivojevic.

      Having obtained an Associate degree in Business Administration from Brookdale Community College, New Jersey in 2003, Radivojevic studied the contemporary politics and history of Southeastern Europe at the University of Toronto. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science & History in June 2007 at the University of Toronto, and in 2010, Radivojevic was awarded a Master degree in European, Russian and Eurasian Studies at the Munk Centre for International Studies, University of Toronto.

      „In 2001, I left Serbia hoping to return to the region as a well-rounded scholar of European security affairs and pursue a professional career in non - governmental organization. Throughout my studies, main focus has been the ongoing Balkan democratization and accountability of security sector actors to the democratically elected institutions. I believe that my engagement at BCSP will further my long term professional career goals, develop my skills for conducting policy research innate to think-tank and build up on my existing knowledge of Serbia’s security reforms“, said Radivojevic.

      Radivojevic has eight years of research experience within academic/government environment and has knowledge of the EU foreign policy and the Western Balkans affairs. He worked for six years at the University of Toronto and an additional two years at the Oxford University Press and European Parliament. During his previous research experience, he analyzed Serbian constitution and the laws regulating oversight and control of the security institutions.

      Think Tank Young Professional Development Program enables participating think tanks, such as BCSP, to recruit young researchers originally from the region who recently graduated from universities in the OECD countries, including the Central European University in Hungary.
