Corruption must not be tolerated

On the occasion of the international day for the fight against corruption, the Centre for Civic Education highlights the need of a systematic and decisive fight against widespread corruption in Montenegrin society. Apart from an evident political will to create conditions for a safe and sound reporting on corruption, this includes a professional work by police, judiciary and prosecution, as well as a systematic raise of public awareness on negative consequences that corruption brings to the overall society…

Police, prosecutors and courts to act against corruption at the University of Montenegro

The Centre for Civic Education (CCE) welcomes with satisfaction the final announcement of the President of the Managing Board of the University of Montenegro (UoM) Duško Bjelica declaring that controls on the work of all institutional bodies will be carried out, as it was recently done at the Faculty of Law. However, the CCE calls for an impartial and comprehensive exercise of that process, which includes control of the work of the Faculty of Law since the 2008/2009 academic year and at the same time controls on all other university units from the side of commissions formed for this purpose, as well as by all other inspection organs…

War for Peace – 21 years later

Centre for Civic Education (CCE) and Action for Human Rights (HRA) from Podgorica and Documenta from Zagreb recall that on this day – 6 December 1991 one of the strongest attacks on Dubrovnik was carried out by the Yugoslav People’s Army (JNA) from the territory of Montenegro, when during the shelling 19 people were killed and about 60 injured.

The approach to solving this problem must be the same for all university units, and regardless whether the President of the UoM Duško Bjelica selectively approached it so far, we hope that the final notice of controls to all faculties will be conducted in thesame manner in which it has already been done at the Law faculty…
