On January 12, 2012, ten male and female interns, who are part of the Internship Program that is implemented at the institutions of the Republic of Serbia, visited the Protector of Citizens’ Office, where they talked with Goran Basic, the Deputy Protector of Citizens. Given that the Protector of Citizens’ offices had been opened in Novi Pazar, Presevo, Bujanovac and Medvedja, where the interns come from, it was particularly important for those young people to learn about the Protector of Citizen’s activities and the issues that he encounters while working in those municipalities.

While talking with Goran Basic, the interns were interested in the way in which the said office solved the complaints lodged in South Serbia, in the nature of the problems the citizens complained about, in the number of complaints lodged in the southern Serbian municipalities, in the way in which the Protector of Citizens’ Office responded once it established that the adopted local activity plans hadn’t been implemented and in a great many other issues.

On behalf of the group of interns, Anita Cekic, an intern at the Ministry of Culture, Information and Information Society, addressed Goran Basic and thanked him for the time he had devoted to the interns.

The Internship Program is implemented by the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights, Public Administration and Local Self-Government. The ten interns are going to build their capacities and gain an insight into the operation of the governmental bodies in the period from November 2011 until April 2012. They shall achieve that by spending their time at the Coordination Body of the Government of the Republic of Serbia for the Municipalities of Presevo, Bujanovac and Medvedja, the Directorate for Human and Minority Rights, the Ministry of Culture and at the Ministry of Education and Science. The internship program, which is implemented in partnership with the OSCE Mission to Serbia, is supported by the British embassy in Serbia.
