What a Difference a Year Makes - Comparative reading and analysis of the April 2018 and August 2019 draft versions of the National Security and Defense Strategies

In the new Report, What a Difference a Year Makes, the Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies from Belgrade (CEAS) presents a comparative analysis of the draft versions of the new National Security Strategy (NSS) and National Defense Strategy (NDS), which the government of the Republic of Serbia approved on 8th August 2019 and passed on to the National Assembly for consideration, in versions that had undergone public discussion back in the spring of 2018. Bearing in mind all the significant changes of circumstances on global, regional and local level that have happened since spring 2018 on one hand, and some significant nuances in the  new versions of Serbian strategic documents endorsed in late summer 2019 on the other, CEAS calls this report – What a Difference a Day Makes - a tribute to its songwriters in Spanish and English, and especially to Dinah Washington and her legendary album What a diff”rence a day makes!

CEAS calls on the Commissioner for Equality to be less discriminatory in her activities-CEAS on the occasion of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies from Belgrade (CEAS) calls on the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality to be less discriminatory, but rather more inclusive, in her, otherwise welcomed, condemnation of verbal and other forms of violence against women, as well as other measures within her purview. Women in public life who are not in power also deserve institutional protection against systemic misogyny, threats and intimidation, including those who in their public work advocate punishment for war crimes, Serbia's cooperation with or membership in NATO, countering harmful Russian influence, or point to the spread of narratives with no scientific merit such as the "cancer epidemic in Serbia", instead of offering it just to opposition journalists and activists, at best.
