He is now a PhD candidate with the proposed topic for the doctoral dissertation entitled "Police integrity and corruption in Serbia", which has a very significant place in the political and legal theory. This topic has been the subject of not so extensive review in Serbian academic community, and the efforts that were made to specify and define it, were mainly based on the world's most important theorists of legitimacy. Having in mind the drama and the character of social changes in societies in transition at the end of the 20th and early 21st century, as well as the problem of the integrity of the police in neighbouring countries, and especially legitimation annulment and re-legitimation of the Serbian police in this period, this subject was imposed as a topic of special social significance and has a particular value for contemporary security studies. Also, the available empirical findings show the emptiness and lack of adequate empirical studies of police legitimacy in Serbia, which is one of the goals of the doctoral dissertation.
