Serbia launched its NAP in 2010 for the period 2010-2015. Its development was led by the Ministry of Defense.
Serbia has a recent history of conflict as part of the former Yugoslavia in the late 1990s. The NAP refers to it in the introduction: “The crimes perpetrated against members of Serbian people and the citizens of Serbia during the armed conflicts in the Republic of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Kosovo and Metohija are strongly condemned; regret and solidarity with the victims of the NATO bombing is expressed; all international actors are invited to fully investigate and properly punish the perpetrators of crimes against the Serbian people and the citizens of Serbia and seek solutions that will ensure that these kinds of casualties will never occur again.”
From a recent academic analysis: The Serbian NAP is unique in that the Ministry of Defense was charged the lead role in its development. In terms of content, it calls for the establishment of three bodies – the Political Council (a high level political body to create political conditions necessary for realization of NAP objectives), the Multi-sector Coordination Body as the operational body of the Serbian Government, and the Supervisory Body as a democratic monitoring mechanism overseeing the implementation of the NAP. Finally, the Serbian NAP has a specific strategic object of enlisting the support of media outlets to support objectives laid out in the NAP (Miller, Pournik, & Swaine, 2014).
