Students visit HLC


Students from the School for International Training (SIT) visited the Humanitarian Law Center (HLC) on Thursday, September 28th, 2017. These students go to various universities in the United States, and as part of the SIT Peace Studies, organized by the Center for Comparative Conflict Studies at the Faculty for Media and Communication, they are currently on a study visit to Serbia.

Relja Radosavljević, Legal Analyst at the HLC, presented the work of the organization, talking about its history, the realization of its project regarding the right to reparations in Serbia and the RECOM Process. Višnja Šijačić, another Legal Analyst at the HLC, also spoke with the students, and presented the achievements in the process of dealing with the past in Serbia, especially focusing on the legal framework and the work of the institutions responsible for the processing of war crimes in Serbia.

Students were particularly interested in the problems that arise in war crimes trials taking place before national courts, and the limitations victims face in exercising their right to reparation.
