SYMMETRIC OR ASYMMETRIC SERBIA?

May 2009.

A public debate on constitutional revision begun even before Serbia's new 2006 Constitution was declared. Dissatisfied with the constitutional frame for Vojvodina's autonomy, the province's autonomists mostly insisted on the issue. At the Third Vojvodina Convention last December they once again emphasized the need for constitutional amendment. Some speakers at the convention even said that autonomy was no longer a frame that could satisfy citizens of Vojvodina. Inability of the ruling coalition to reach a consensus on the draft Vojvodina statute....

 

VOJVODINA - CIVIL RIGHTS ENDANGERED

In the second half of 2008, the problems besetting the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, namely the continual undermining of its multiethnic potentials, culminated in attacks on the province's Draft Statute. The document triggered yet another wave of campaigning against the idea of decentralization, that is of Vojvodina's autonomy. A petition against the Draft Statute introduced as part of the campaign was signed by 75 intellectuals and academicians. The year was marked by the Kosovo issue and by revivified anti-Montenegrin and, especially, anti-Croatian propaganda. Given the political context, the Draft Statute, whose...

 

Serbia's Hungarians:

CURRENT SITUATION, VIEWS ON THE SERBIAN POWER-STRUCTURE AND FUTURE PROSPECTS

By Andras Beszterczey

This report aims to depict the general trends that have come to characterise Vojvodina's Hungarians' place in Serbia in the last five years. The period has seen the steadily dwindling group politically marginalised even as the nation moves closer to what the EU would deem a suitable state-of-affairs.

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.
