The “SALUS” award was founded in 2015 as a prize to be awarded to the best policy papers dealing with security policies, written by the students of the University of Belgrade – Faculty of Political Sciences. The aim of this award is to encourage theoretical thinking among students, but also searching for innovative practical solutions for security issues. The authors of the competing policy papers are the students who attend the courses Security of Serbia (BA studies) and Security Sector Reform (MA programme International Security). The prize is supported by the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy.
