CEAS Announcement - On the occasion of the 21st anniversary of the start of NATO bombing of FRY

Since its inception, the Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies from Belgrade (CEAS) has advocated for a broad domestic and international debate on the causes and consequences of NATO bombing of the then Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY), based on as many available facts as possible. Such debate and consensus would not only provide the sound grounds for Serbia's much-needed co-operation with NATO and a compromise solution to Kosovo's new status, but also represent a shield against systematic disinformation campaigns concerning those events by third parties, both state and non-state. CEAS, therefore, fully supports the recent initiative of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic to finally determine a state list of all fatal casualties, including the circumstances of their deaths. CEAS has continuously advocated before Western international community to provide Serbia with as much assistance as possible to remedy grave environmental problems caused by various factors, and to strengthen its environmental protection capacity.

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. As it happens, the Commissioner condemns the perpetrators of violence against women in some cases, but not in other, although much longer lasting, and yet the offenders in both cases are one and the same.

CEAS announcement: Haradinaj exposed the lie of the alleged intention to divide Kosovo by ethnic lines

The recent statement of Kosovo's outgoing Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj about his preventing the “theft“ of 10 billion euros (from Kosovo's perspective) by stalling the plan of alleged “partition“ of Kosovo, negotiated by Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic and president of provisional institutions of Kosovo and Metohija, Hashim Thaci, referring, inter alia, to governing the resources of the Trepca mine, completely denuded the lies of partition by ethnic principle systematically disseminated by Haradinaj, some governments of EU Member States, many commentators, certain political actors in the USA, project-funded media and civil society organizations. In this perfidious way, they protected some vested political and financial interests, not the interests of Serbia's citizens.
