Good Government’s decision to dismiss Lakicevic Djuranovic from negotiating structure

Centre for Civic Education (CCE) welcomes the decision of the Government of Montenegro to dismiss Associate Professor at the Law Faculty of University of Montenegro, Bojana Lakicevic- Djuranovic from the negotiating structure.

As a reminder, in mid-September, the CCE has sent a letter to the Chief Negotiator, Aleksandar Drljevic, to urgently submit a proposal to the Government of Montenegro to withdraw Lakicevic Djuranovic from the working groups for preparation of negotiations on Montenegro’s accession to the European Union in the field of the EU acquis related to Chapter 2 (Freedom of movement of workers) and Chapter 13 (Fisheries). A copy of this letter was also sent to the Prime Minister, Dusko Markovic, the Deputy Prime Minister for Political System, Interior and Foreign Policy, Zoran Pazin, and the Rector of the University of Montenegro, Danilo Nikolic. Earlier, more precisely in mid-July, a similar letter was sent to Rector Nikolic, but he ignored our well-founded proposal, which, in our opinion, further erodes credibility of the University of Montenegro. »

Responsibility as basis for stimulating non-violent action

On the occasion of 2 October – International Day of Non-Violence, the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) takes the opportunity to invite all actors of society to make greater efforts to create societal norms that lead to nonviolent conflict resolution, as well as competent institutions to most severely sanction the behaviour of those who encourage and deepen any form of violent behaviour.

In order to contribute to building of the society open to change and adoption of democratic values ​​and standards, it is necessary to lay the foundation of responsible action of each individual in all social changes. Only through system of responsibility we can contribute to creating culture of non-violence.
