Six and a half percent

I can picture the deans of faculties walking through the halls in the eve of the New Year holidays and considering who should be “dumped”, while offering polite smiles and holiday wishes.

Yet another year

Not much will change in 2015 when it comes to respect for human rights. One may even expect a deterioration of relations towards freedom of expression and human rights defenders.

Serbian society and war crimes

“The very reality of existence, almost reduced to the mere existence of our bodies, has become suspicious”, said Srdja Popovic in this essay 11 years ago. He left us a year ago, but Serbian society is still standing in the same, unbearable spot.

From Germany with love

Balkanist – German publishing house De Gruyter has confirmed that the article authored by Belgrade mayor Sinisa Mali, which granted him the right to defend his doctoral dissertation at FON, is plagiarism.
