MONTHLY REPORT OF ACTION MARCH Dear Rotaractors, Early spring awakening

Content RAC Subotica RAC Novi Sad RAC Beograd-Dedinje RAC Beograd—Sava RAC Pancevo

March is the herald of spring. Everywhere in the air begins to feel the breath of freshness mixed with the scent of the first petals. ... For the umpteenth time we wonder whether spring reminds us that we should show honor to somebody? As a noun, “honor” in the Bible means esteem, value, or great respect. It exhorts us to express respect and esteem toward people- our parents, our friends, the aged, the children, to love the brotherhood, fear God, to respect all other religions and hystorical memories. That is why our actions were colored with a honor toward women on the day of March 8th, with a color of friendship and fun, through joint outings and recreations. As in spring the snow melts even in the mountains, we expect that the spring will generate new ideas as the first buds and flowers. Yours in Rotaract

From the Editors Each time brings new expectation, every friendship is a living episode, that expands the boundaries and horizons. I enrolled the PhD Biomedical Technology Studies in September, after receiving a scholarship from the Slovenian government, as a top-30 doctoral students in the country. My life came to the border between north and south. Great welcome honor I debit by the President of the RAC Maribor Matej Krampac and the other rotaractors brothers! RAC Maribor is in the district 1920. It has been chartered in 2000. Club members are recognizable leaders in their fields from the social, humanitary and natural sciences, sport, but above all good friends! It was my great honor to attend the debate under the title "Networking" (Umrezivanje), where the District Governor of Slovenia was also attended and explained the moral principles of Rotary , contained in the Four-way test as well as the global objective of Rotary Foundation, the morals and ethics of friendship. In this year Maribor has been nominated as the European Cultural Capital, and next year it will be the European capital of youths.

I hope that young people will bring GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS leading also to the good cooperation between our districts. Hristina Kocic

Jovana Perovic visited Hague

In the land of tulips and windmills When you think about the Netherlands, the first things on your mind are probably tulips, windmills, clogs, Rembrandt, Vincent van Gogh, “The Diary of Anne Frank" and other well-known sights of this country. In the modern history, at the end of 20th century, this WesternEuropean country became a home of many international judicial institutions, judges, experts and lawyers, specialized in the area of International Criminal Law and International Humanitarian Law. Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), Mission to Serbia, supported by the Embassy of Netherlands organized visit of students from Serbia to this international institutions in the Hague. The goal of this visit was to help young people interested in International Criminal Law to learn something more and to get more experience. One of them was our friend Jovana Perović, Secretary of the Rotaract Club “Niš-Constantine the Great”, law student who won the third place on Tenth Serbian Moot Court Competition in International Humanitarian Law.

It is organized every year by the National Society of the Red Cross and the International Committee of the Red Cross and got the chance to participate in Jean Pictet Competition. During her visit, Jovana had an opportunity to learn something more about International Criminal Court (ICC), established by an international treaty (the Rome Statute) which has now 120 countries as parties and Serbia is one of them. The Court organized the presentation on the ICC by a representative of the Presidency, Chambers of Registry and representative of the Office of the Prosecutor. Students also visited the Courtrooms and got more explanations.

At the end of the first day of visiting the Hague, Jovana and rest of the Serbian delegation had a reception at the Serbian Embassy. The Ambassador and the First Secretary of the Embassy, Saša Obradović, also known as the Agent of Serbia before the ICJ (International Court of Justice) received them and explained the cases of Serbia before the ICJ. International Court of Justice is one of the organs of UN which is situated also in the Hague in the “Peace Palace”, palace where League of Nations was established .

She could improve her knowledge and professional ethic by conversation and lectures of Trial Attorneys, Defence Counsel, Legal Officers and Judges. The great honor for visitors was the reception of Mr. Serge Brammertz , the Prosecutor of ICTY who wanted to know more about them, their plans for future and their opinion about the Tribunal. The unforgettable thing for our young rotaractor is certainly the trials (case “Karadžić” and closing arguments in the case “Šešelj”). http://www.icty.org/sid/10938

During one week visit students also visited International Court of Justice and Special Tribunal for Lebanon (the first international court with jurisdiction over the crime of terrorism in times of peace). The most exciting visit for Jovana was the visit of International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), established on 25th May 1993, by resolution of the UN Security Council. 4

16.03.2012.

GOAL: Honoring Rotaract Week International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, The Hague, the Netherlands We at Rotaract Club “Nis – Constantine the Great” take Vocational Service very seriously and do our best to be professional on our everyday workplaces and represent our Club worthily. We think that the best way to promote your Club in your local community is to do your best to be the best at your job. This is why we are proud to share with our national Rotaract community that our Club Secretary Jovana Perovic visited the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), International Court for Justice (ICJ) and Special Tribunal for Lebanon in The Hague, Netherlands as the Best Student of Faculty of Law in Nis, and winner of national competition in Criminal law. That way, Jovana showed exceptional professional ethics and standards, which we think promote in best possible way the idea of Rotary and our Club as well. The whole event was organized by Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). Jovana, along with the rest of the Serbian delegation had a reception at the Serbian Embassy. During her visit to The Hague, Jovana also managed to take some time to visit Rotary Club Hague where she presented our Club and our Country, made valuable contacts and discussed possible future cooperation between our two Clubs. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3629742628880.171344.1433545912&type=3&__adt=4

First look at the camels Look again! Amazing, isn’t it?

We are expecting that images of the desert are usually full of illusions. Please look at the camels, and then read the message below. This photo was taken directly from the National Geographic. The photo was made above the camels during the sunset. It should be declared as one of the finest images. When you look carefully, you can realize that black camels are not real camels, the camels are the small white lines in the picture! Black camels are their shadows. Look again! Amazing, is not it? I wonder whether it happened in our real life? How do you see somebody when you fall in love? Of course as a big and powerful. Is it always true? Isn’t he /she in your eyes as a black camel (despite of his/her real quality)? Or otherwise, when you hate and disparage somebody, isn’t she/he looks as a white camel (despite of his/her real quality). Sometimes, we make our idols much bigger than they actually are, creating a large shadow over them. However, they are often much smaller than we think. Let's try to be real and to see persons or problems from another-real angle .
