Volunteers: Open Call for Applications!

The organizers of the Belgrade Security Forum (BSF) are pleased to invite enthusiastic and motivated students and graduates from universities, schools and institutes based in Serbia and abroad to join the BSF team for the 6th Belgrade Security Forum.

Every year, the Belgrade Security Forum gathers over 100 speakers and more than 600 high-ranking officials, including representatives from prestigious research and science institutes, civil society organizations, parliaments and media from Serbia, Europe and around the world.

The aim of the Forum is to intensify high-quality debate on security, international relations and responsibility to find solutions for the current security challenges in the Balkans and Europe. In this respect, BSF volunteers are essential to support operations which will ensure a smooth running of the conference.
