TE-SAT process in Serbia
Serbian counter-terrorism stakeholders from the Ministry of Interior attended a workshop related to the Terrorism situation and trends report of the EU (TE-SAT), which took place on 16.11.2021, in Belgrade. To that aim, representatives of the Directorate for International Police Cooperation (EUROPOL Affairs Department and INTERPOL Affairs Department) and the Service for Combating Terrorism, Criminal Police Directorate sat together to discuss the national contribution to TE-SAT, pursuant to their roles and responsibilities. The purpose of the workshop was to assess the existing TE-SAT methodology and current reporting mechanisms, with a special emphasis on how to support the WB6 in an improved, adequate assessment in providing contributions to TE-SAT.
TE-SAT is a situation report prepared by Europol on annual basis, which describes and analyses the outward manifestations of terrorism, i.e. terrorist attacks and activities. All 6 Western Balkan beneficiaries, including Serbia provide qualitative and quantitative data for the CT situation in the region which is embodied in a separate section of the TE-SAT report. Consequently, CSC WB intends to foster 6 national workshops on the national contributions of each WB beneficiary to the TE-SAT report.
CSC WB will continue to support the coordination, cooperation, networking and sharing of best practices on a common threat basis within the Western Balkans and with the EU.
