The Forth Security Research Forum Belgrade-Pristina-Tirana will be held in Hotel Tirana International on 24 January 2014. In the framework of the Security Research Forum Belgrade-Prishtina-Tirana, the three partner organizations conducted a public opinion survey on Serbian-Albanian relations in the context of personal safety, national security and security integration in September 2013. The main findings and highlights of the public opinion perception in the three countries related to regional cooperation will be discussed by:
Florian Qehaja, Executive Director of Kosovar Centre for Security Studies
Sonja Stojanovic, Executive Director of Belgrade Centre for Security Policy
Foto Duro Center for European and Security Affairs, The Institute for Democracy and Mediation.
During the event it will be also discussed on police and law enforcement cooperation between Serbia, Kosovo and Albania. What are the main achievements of this cooperation and what remains to be done in order to meet the EU conditions on police and law enforcement cooperation are some of the topics on which will discuss:
Artan Bajraktari, Director of International Cooperation and Coordination Directorate, General Directorate of State Police

This event is part of broader project, “Security Research Forum”, undertaken by three independent think tanks: the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy, the Kosovar Centre for Security Studies and the Institute for Democracy and Mediation with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway. The Security Research Forum is meant to foster balanced debate among think-tank community, academia, public policy and media in order to provide research-based alternative solutions to ongoing challenges of cooperation among Serbia, Kosovo and Albania.
