Svetlana Đurđević Lukić“ PROGRAMME AND FOUNDATION

Uncertainty and vulnerability of the individual in the 21st century is the focus of CENTAR’s Human Security Programme. Building on foundations set by the recently departed co-founder and longtime director of CENTAR, Svetlana Đurđević Lukić, CENTAR regards security as a human right and advocates for construing a society in which every individual will have opportunities to reach their potential. 

Svetlana had a talent of pioneering the introduction of many topics – primarily concerned with the security of vulnerable groups – into security discourse within Serbia.

Fostering this approach, starting from 2016, CENTAR, as part of its foundation named after the late Svetlana, has held a competition with the goal of inspiring young researchers with different educational backgrounds to examine modern day threats that endanger the safety of individuals in communities.
