TURNABOUT - SERBIA IN EUROPE, EUROPE IN SERBIA

November, 2011

Signatories (15kb) >>>

Citizens of Serbia,
We are bound to be brave when Serbia is disheartened. We are bound to speak the truth in a Serbia in which it is easier to lie to others and to ourselves. We are bound to defend our right

to Serbia in Europe and Europe in Serbia. All of us, citizens of good will, who struggled for a European Serbia from March 9, 1991 to October 5, 2000, are embittered because of all the numerous lost opportunities. We are especially dismayed with the unnecessary and dangerous succumbing of a pro-European government to the anti-European hysteria and strategy that log barricades at two border crossings in northern Kosovo can become the barrier to granting the status of candidate and the date for the beginning of negotiations for Serbia's...

THE DIVIDED STATES OF EUROPE

By Marko Papic

June 28, 2011

Europe continues to be engulfed by economic crisis. The global focus returns to Athens on June 28 as Greek parliamentarians debate austerity measures imposed on them by eurozone partners. If the Greeks vote down these measures, Athens will not receive its second bailout, which could create an even worse crisis in Europe and the world. It is important to understand that the crisis is not fundamentally about Greece or even about the indebtedness of the entire currency bloc. After all, Greece represents only...

U.S. HELSINKI COMMISSION TO HOLD HEARING ON HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND TRANSNATIONAL ORGANIZED CRIME

November 2, 2011

10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Please join the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe for a hearing that explores the nexus between Transnational Organized Crime and Human Trafficking.

Organized Crime has evolved to meet the challenges of globalization and modern technology. In this evolution major international criminal organizations and smaller highly specialized groups of criminal entrepreneurs have found new ways to expand their operations and exploit human beings into slavery. To meet these challenges new national and international strategies have been placed into action, but their results remain to be seen. This continues the Helsinki Commission’s hearing series on new fronts in human trafficking. This hearing will focus on: (1) the evolving nature of Transnational Organized Crime, (2) the role of major international organized crime groups and smaller organized criminal syndicates in human trafficking, (3) identified trends, and (4) strategies to combat these organizations and prevent the trafficking of human beings.
