Tanja Miščević is Chief Negotiator for Serbia’s accession negotiations with the EU. She is also a former State Secretary of the Republic of Serbia Ministry of Defence and is a Vice President of the European Movement of Serbia.

From 2009 to 2010, she was a member and a vice president of the board of the Anticorruption Agency. From 2005 to 2008, she served as Director of the Government of Serbia’s European Integration Office, was a member of the negotiation team for the SAA negotiations, and was also head of the negotiation team for the Readmission and Visa Facilitation Agreement between Serbia and the EU. Between 2003 and 2004, Ms. Miščević was coordinator for Serbia and Montenegro’s training for administrators on EU issues.

Dr. Miščević is also a professor at the Faculty of Political Sciences in Belgrade. She teaches courses on International Organizations, the UN System, EU Accession Policy, the History of European Integration, as well as a course on the Common Foreign and Security Policy at the Faculty of Political Science in Podgorica, Montenegro.

She is also head of the International Organizations course at the Diplomatic Academy of the Republic of Serbia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

On Monday 12 May, Dr Miščević gave a talk at the London School of Economics, focusing on the current issues surrounding Serbia's accession negotiations with the EU.

'The key issue for me, as a Serbian citizen, is not the text of a law or how it has been adopted at the national level, but the actual implementation of laws on the ground. The most important aspect is that Serbian citizens must be able to call upon laws which are in accordance with EU standards and be able to protect their rights. That is something that we are going to work very hard on', commented Dr Miščević in an interview for the LSEE Blog.
