The ISAC Fond has the honour to announce the commencement of cooperation with Jagello 2000, the leading Czech Association for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation (http://www.jagello.org). Following several months of discussions, on a meeting held in Belgrade on April 14, the top management of the two organisations have agreed to venture into cooperation through a pilot project. The first common project of the new partners is a week long intensive seminar on Euro-Atlantic issues in Prague for university lecturers from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The seminar (13 to 20 May) aims at transferring the Czech transition experiences in general, as well as the experiences in reforms of the security and defence sectors and Euro-Atlantic integrations in particular, to professors and lecturers from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The main topics to be covered at the seminar include development of defence structure and the army, the reform of the intelligence services, the defence and political aspects of NATO, coordination and cooperation between EU and NATO, the changes in security systems of Euro-Atlantic structures made in response to the necessity of combating terrorism, etc. The entire project is supported by the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
In line with its Mission, the ISAC Fund continues to expand cooperation with likeminded institutions abroad for the purpose of offering the best possible programs to professionals from Serbia in an effort to help prepare them for a more successful Euro-Atlantic integrations process.
