The Belgrade Centre for Security Policy is an independent think-tank which is 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 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 mission to advocate democratization of the security sector in Serbia.
