As part of our Building Integrity project in the Ministry of Kosovo Security Forces (MKSF), CIDS organised a study visit to the Croatian Ministry of Defence (MoD) on 31 May – 1 June. The Kosovo delegation consisted of six members of the MKSF working group, who all take part in the development of an integrity action plan for their defence sector. CIDS´s regional expert Mr Florian Qehaja was leading the delegation through their two-day visit to Zagreb, together with Mr Kyrre Knutsen, senior adviser in the Norwegian MoD.
During the visit, the MKSF delegation learned about Croatian experiences in the field of integrity and anti-corruption, as well as relevant legal and policy aspects. Drawing on their recent integration process with the EU, the Croatians shared their knowledge and expertise on highly relevant issues. There were lively discussions on human resource management, internal auditing, the role of the defence inspectorate, as well as procurement and asset management.
CIDS would like to thank our colleagues in the Croatian MoD for their kind hospitality and for sharing their expertise on building integrity with us.
