Thomas Jefferson believed deeply in the power of public education to drive progress through the generations. In creating the University of Virginia and in his lifelong advocacy of free universal primary education for the peoples of Virginia he battled not only for the individual’s right to know. For Jefferson, an educated public was a necessary pillar of democracy itself.

In the Jefferson Institute education program, we strive too for education, intense and inspiring, with a clear purpose – to enable and to empower peoples and nations so that they might live more freely.

We create and deploy digital tools to improve both formal and informal education.

Foreign policy is, probably more than any other policy in Serbia, burdened with legacy problems left behind by Milošević. Problems such as The Hague, Kosovo and relations between Serbia and Montenegro in the context of the association with the European Union create deep divisions in the public.

Smuggling, trafficking and other forms of illicit trade have, in recent literature, mostly been analyzed as manifestations of state weakness or deviance.

 

2004

We attempt to approach the remaining controversial issues in drafting a new consitution for Serbia. The roundtable and papers presented by constitutional scholars discuss the following controversies: state character (definition of the state), direct election of the president, decentralization of Serbia, and constitutional revision.

2003

Border communities are the deep line of defense against smuggling. However, these same communities are often involved in the smuggling themselves. If you want to mobilize a local community to resist smuggling weapons, first identify the smuggled commodity that they are ready to mobilize against (in this case, drugs).
