Opis radnog mjesta: Background

Integrative Internal Security Governance in the Western Balkans.

The Integrative Internal Security Governance (IISG) in the Western Balkans is a coordination platform bringing together Western Balkan partners, relevant international partners, EU actors and EU Member States in the areas of counterterrorism and preventing violent extremism (P/CVE) serious organised crime and border security, in line with the EU perspective for the region.

The objective of the IISG is to improve collective efficiency by mapping needs and coordinating responses concerning security threats in the Western Balkan region. The results to be achieved by the IISG are: identification of security needs and responses in the Western Balkans; increased coordination of IISG Members; high visibility of achievements among stakeholders and the wider public. The work of the IISG is conducted at strategic and technical levels within the respective IISG structures – IISG Board, IISG Support Group and IISG Secretariat.

The IISG is organised in the following three thematic pillars: The WBCTi (“Western Balkans Counter-Terrorism Initiative”): actions related to counter-terrorism and preventing and countering violent extremism; The WBCSCi (“Western Balkans Counter Serious Crime Initiative”): actions related to fighting serious organised crime; The WBBSi (“Western Balkans Border Security Initiative”): actions related to border security.

The core tasks of IISG are to: map the security needs in the Western Balkans region in the areas of counter-terrorism, organised crime and border security; map ongoing projects, activities, initiatives (“actions”) conducted, in the first place, by IISG members from a regional perspective (“responses”). On this basis develop and disseminate to the relevant stakeholders a comprehensive and regularly updated overview; analyse whether the needs are adequately addressed, to prevent duplications and gaps in responses, and to suggest and facilitate potential synergies; collect and communicate achievements in order to ensure their visibility.
