The Centre for Civil - Military Relations (Belgrade) is organizing an international conference on Culture and Security Sector Reform: Political, Strategic and Military Culture in Transitional Countries in Sremski Karlovci (Serbia), May 7-10, 2009. Deadline for submissions is March 15, 2009.

The aim of the conference is to explore the linkages between political, strategic and military culture in post-Communist states, and in particular in the Western Balkans. In doing so, it will seek to bridge the gap between structure and culture and offer to the academic and policy communities in the Western Balkans a better understanding of the salience of political, military and strategic cultures in the process of SSR. With this aim, we seek contributions that will address the issues of culture and SSR. The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • theoretical approaches to the study of political, strategic and military culture;
  • political culture in the Western Balkans, comparatively and individual countries;
  • the transformation of military culture in post-Communist states;
  • the impact of Euro-Atlantic integration processes on strategic and military culture;
  • factors influencing culture in individual states;
  • the impact of culture on the Security Sector Reform in post-conflict and post-authoritarian countries;
  • the role of military education in SSR.
