Changing the Constitution on the Way to the European Union

24.10.2017 08:45

The final conference of the project Changing the Constitution on the Way to the European Union will be organized on October 24th 2017 at Aeroclub (Uzun Mirkova 4, Belgrade).

Serbia is currently in the process of amending its Constitution, 11 years after its adoption. In the process of EU accession it was defined that Serbia will revise its Constitution by the end of 2017. In the context of this planed revision of the Constitution, European Movement in Serbia (EMinS) has implemented the project Changing the Constitution on the Way to the European Union, identifying parts of the Constitution that have to be amended in order to make Serbia’s EU accession possible and constitutional. We went beyond the reform of judiciary, that was a spark initiating constitutional reform, and analyzed all aspects of the Constitution influenced by the EU accession process. The conference will be the final event of the Project where all results of the project will be presented.


EMInS has developed four policy papers identifying points of the Constitution that we believe should be introduced or amended in the context of EU accession of Serbia:

 

  • General analysis identifying parts of Constitution that should be amended,
  • Amendments to the position of the state independent organs,
  • Amendments to the position of judiciary and achieving its independence,
  • Amending procedural provisions for amending the Constitutions.


Amendments defined and policy papers developed will be topics at Conference panels. Download Congerence Agenda here.
