Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (BCSP)

The Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (BCSP) is an independent think-tank advocating human, national, regional and international security based on democracy and respect for human rights. The Centre works towards the consolidation of security sector reform (SSR) and the security integration of the Western Balkan states into the Euro-Atlantic community by creating an inclusive and knowledge-based security policy environment.

It achieves these goals through research, public advocacy, education, bringing together relevant stakeholders, and creating networking opportunities. It was founded as the Centre for Civil-Military Relations (CCMR) in 1997 with a mission to advocate for democratic control of the security sector in Serbia. BCSP is ranked among top 20 think tanks in CEE and among 70 Security and International Affairs Think Tanks.
