ASYLUM POLICY: CHALLENGES AND ANSWERS SYSTEMS IN THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA
The subject of analysis in this paper is the asylum policy in the Republic of Serbia. The aim is to analyze the asylum policy with a focus on the existing normative, strategic and institutional framework in this area and their harmonization with the standards and regulations of the European Union and international documents. The theoretical framework of the analysis is a concept of migration between welfare and citizenship that simultaneously includes and excludes migrants. The methodological approach is based on the analysis of the content of statistical, political and legislative documents. The results of the analysis show that this system requires the existence of an regulated framework that constitutes a clear asylum policy and an organizational and normative structure that will enable a fair procedure and protection of the rights of asylum seekers. Monitoring and analysis of the process of implementation and creation of appropriate asylum policy has acquired a special dimension, not only due to the increase in the number of asylum seekers, but also due to monitoring the situation and creating a desirable system in this area. Serbia has shown its commitment to promoting an integration policy aimed at enacting the rights and obligations of foreigners, which can be compared to the rights and obligations of its citizens. However, Serbia has yet to develop a coordinated and integrated migration policy and intensive implementation in practice. The integration of migrants into our society is needed, and the main role in the process of integration of migrants should be played by the state, the system and the plan.

PUBLIC AND CIVIL SECTOR COOPERATION IN THE FIGHT AGAINST TRAFFICKING IN HUMAN BEINGS
The global phenomenon of human trafficking is very difficult to stop without the cooperation of various actors in the country and internationally. In this regard, international actors have supported and strengthened all public sector efforts to form a strategic partnership with various representatives of international and non-governmental organizations in Serbia and worldwide in accordance with international standards and rules. The main research objective in this paper was to analyze the relationship between the public and civil sectors, as the most important actors in the fight against human trafficking and to provide adequate protection and assistance to victims of trafficking in the national context. The civil sector is expanding its activities beyond the provision of social services, but in Serbia its activities are focused solely on the provision of social services. Within the framework of securing and organizing the well-being of public policy, the central place is occupied by the state, but the state is not necessarily the only provider, but there are numerous other ways of ensuring well-being and security in society. Improving the quality of life of Serbian citizens is the responsibility of both sectors, and their initiative requires sincere and developed cooperation. Nevertheless, the responsibility is greater for the state as a stronger partner. In the current circumstances, it can be concluded that solid foundations for cooperation have been laid, thanks to the improvement of the institutional and legal framework, although civil sector expectations were that cooperation with the public sector would develop more rapidly. The involvement of the civil sector as an equal member in this fight has made the public sector measures complementary and more effective through the involvement and experience of the civil sector.
