Date of entry on duty
1 April 2019
This vacancy is open for the applicants with the citizenship of an OSCE participating State, excluding the Republic of Serbia.
The Parliament of the Republic of Serbia adopted the Law on Lobbying in 2018 and foresaw its entering into force on 14 August 2019. The new Law brought on new prerogatives for the Anti-corruption Agency of Serbia, making it one of the key institutions in the newly regulated corruption preventive measure. There had been no normative act before in this field in Serbia; therefore one of the Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) recommendations in its Forth Evaluation Round Report on Serbia in July 2015 was to enact such regulations. The OSCE Mission to Serbia will assist the Anti-corruption Agency to prepare for implementation of the new Law.
