Human trafficking in domestic legislature
Skakavac Zdravko,SimiTatjana
Temida , 2008, DOI: 10.2298/tem0804023s
Abstract: Human trafficking is an occurrence that, even in our time, is present in alarming proportions, in its actuality and consequences. It is a phenomenon with a long history and has been qualified as a serious international problem and is the object of interest for a large number of international subjects. However, the key international document that defines this phenomenon is the Convention against Transnational Organized Crime from Palermo 2000; specifically its Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children. After its adoption, intensive actions were undertaken to regulate the phenomenon on the level of national legislature. It's done so in the local legislature too. According to the criminal law of the republic of Serbia, besides the concrete law against human trafficking, a number of other crimes are connected to human trafficking. This paper deals with the most important ones. The purpose of this paper is to review the legislature on the phenomenon in the domestic law, then the accordance of incrimination with international standards, as well as to indicate the need for further changes in domestic legislature.

Abstract: The objective was to get insight into the role of executive apoptotic enzyme caspase 3 (CPP32) and regulatory antiapoptotic protein Bcl-2 in the malignant phenotype of TCC. Samples were obtained from 84 TCC patients, who underwent transurethral resection, partial or radical cystectomy. Staging showed a superficial growth pattern in 41 patient, while other 43 showed invasive characteristics. Expression of CPP32 and Bcl-2 was determined by immunocytochemistry. Levels of expression were correlated with tumor stage and grade. Expression of CPP32 was positive in 80% of TCC patients. Low-, medium- and high positive status were observed in 18%, 24% and 38% of patients, respectively. There was a signifficant difference in the CPP32 expression between groups with superficial and invasive TCC tumors (p = 0.032), with frequency of CPP32 negative samples being higher and CPP32 high-positive samples being lower in patients with muscle-invasive tumors. Significant association was also found between CPP32 expression and tumor stage (p = 0.043). The positive rate of Bcl-2 protein expression was 48%. There was a statisticaly signifficant difference in the rate of Bcl-2 positivity between superficial and invasive TCC (p = 0.005), with frequency of Bcl-2 positive patients being higher in muscle-invasive TCC. Significant association was also found between Bcl-2 expression and both tumor grade (p=0.032) and stage (p=0.007). Muscle invasive TCC of the urinary bladder is associated with down-regulated expression of CPP32 and Bcl-2 positivity. Down-regulation of CPP32 and up-regulated Bcl-2 might, at least partially, play a role in the development of invasive characteristics of TCC.

Abstract: Body height and weight are influenced by interaction of genetic and environmental factors but also depend upon the ethnic and socio-cultural characteristics of populations. The aim of the study is to determine the height, weight and nutritional status of adult population of Vojvodina, as well as to establish similarities and differences among various ethnic groups, i.e. the natives of Vojvodina and newcomers from different parts of former Yugoslavia. The investigation was conducted in 10 rural settlements of northwest Ba ka and central Banat. The investigation included 608 males (mean age 41.34 11.49) and 768 females (mean age 41.85 10.64). Data processing included standard statistical methods, while t-test was employed for testing differences among groups. In relation to ethnic group belonging, the analysis included Serbs, Hungarians and Montenegrins, while natives and newcomers from Bosnia and Herzegovina were analyzed in relation to the native land origin. The subjects of both sexes from central Banat have greater height than the subjects from northwest Ba ka. Hungarians of both sexes exhibit lower body height in comparison with all other groups, while Herzegovina newcomers have the greatest height values. For body weight, similar values are obtained in both of the areas. The average BMI in males equals 27.23 kg/m2 in Ba ka and 26.59 kg/m2 in Banat. In females, the values are lower and equal 26.12 kg/m2 in Ba ka and 25.29 kg/m2 in Banat. The population of this region is characterized by great height. Natives of both sexes show markedly lower height and weight values in relation to all three newcomers groups. The greatest number of male population falls in the category of overweight (46%). Females are mostly of normal weight (47.81%), while the number of overweight and obese females equals 34.67% and 14.42%, respectively.

Abstract: Exposure to potential carcinogens is among the etiological factors for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the urinary bladder. RCC is very resistant, while TCC exhibits a high recurrence rate and multifocality. Cytosolic glutathione S-transferases (GST) are a superfamily of enzymes which protect normal cells by catalyzing conjugation reactions between electrophylic compounds, including carcinogens, and glutathione. Some GST enzymes posses hydroperoxidase activity. The most well characterized classes have been named Alpha (GSTA), Mu (GSTM), Pi (GSTP) and Theta (GSTT) and each of these classes contains several different isoenzymes. Several types of allelic variation have been identified within classes, among which GSTM1-null and GSTT1-null confer impaired catalytic activity. Individuals with the GSTM1-null genotype carry a substantially higher risk for bladder carcinogenesis. The effects of glutathione S-transferase T1 polymorphism on the increased susceptibility to RCC and TCC of urinary bladder depend on the presence of specific chemical exposures to compounds metabolized via the GSTT1-1 pathway. In the process of kidney cancerisation expression of GST alpha isoenzymes tends to decrease, consequently favoring a prooxidant environment necessary for the growth of RCC. GST pi enzyme activities are generally retained in RCC and might contribute to the chemotherapy resistance of RCC. In the malignant phenotype of TCC of the urinary bladder up regulation of various GST classes occurs. Up regulation of GSTT1-1 and GSTP1-1 might have important consequences on the tumor growth, by providing a reduced environment and inhibition of apoptotic pathways.

Abstract: Members of the glutathione S-transferase (GST) superfamily exhibit polymorphic expression. GSTs are investigated as biomarkers of risk for various cancers, including renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The aim of this study was to test the association between GSTM1 and GSTT1 polymorphism and susceptibility to RCC, independently or in conjunction with known risk factors. Genomic DNA was isolated from 182 controls and 76 patients with RCC. GSTM1 and GSTT1 genotypes were determined by multiplex PCR. Data obtained were analyzed with respect to RCC risk factors including smoking and occupational exposure. The frequency of GSTM1-null genotype was higher in patients with RCC (60.5%) compared to controls (47.2%). GSTT1-null genotype was found in 28.6% controls and 27.6% of cases. GSTM1-null individuals exhibit 1.9-fold increased risk of RCC (95% CI: 1.06-3.33). The presence of GSTT1 active genotype was associated with increased risk of RCC in occupationally exposed subjects when unexposed GSTT1-null subjects were used as a comparison group (OR: 2.48; 95% CI: 1.05-5.86). No association was found between the inactive form of GSTM1 and GSTT1 and smoking in RCC patients. In a Serbian cohort of patients, the presence of a GSTM1 active genotype is protective against RCC, whereas a GSTT1 active genotype increases RCC risk in occupationally exposed subjects.
Identity construction of a football club on the example of FC Obili

Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2004, DOI: 10.2298/gei0452067s
Abstract: In this paper I show identity construction of FC Obili , Belgrade. Material for the research is collected in the first half of the 2002 and it is consisted of the monograph published for the club' s 75th" anniversary, club advertisement materials (T-shirts and calendars) and the club's museum. Discourse analyze used in the paper is the combination of the Foucaultian understanding of discourse and more "practical" use of the term used in linguistics and constructivist psychology. Analysis is supplemented by Leach's analyses of symbols' logic usual in our ethnology. Taking into consideration that analyzed materials are official representing materials of the club, discourse analyze used in the paper show club's official ideology that could vary from that of the players of team's supporters. Analyses shows that dominant discourse on which Obili based its identity is combination of national ideology (very much based on the ideas of Orthodox Christianity and national heroism) and ideas of modernity formed in the selective use of "western values". Basic identity connection established in the materials I used is between Serbian hood, Obili (and football more generally, Arkan and modernity).
Displaying nationality as traditional culture in the Belgrade Ethnographic Museum: Exploration of a museum modernity practice
Simi? Marina
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/gei0654305s
Abstract: This paper is an exploration of the modernist project of museums’ construction of "reality" through the processes of the collecting and displaying of objects, as practiced in the Ethnographic Museum Belgrade. Through the analysis of the museum’s collecting and exhibiting practices, I will try to argue that in Belgrade ethnographic museum practice the idea of the nation is closely connected with the idea of ethnicity as a bounded whole of the distinctive characteristics embodied in the traditional culture that the museum collects and displays.
Vision and visuality: Regimes of knowledge and appropriation of others in ethnographic museums and ethnographic film
Simi? Marina
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/gei1001085s
Abstract: This paper presents some similarities between epistemological paradigms in anthropological museum exhibitions and ethnographic films. Both the museum and ethnographic films are analysed as the models of representations based on the domination of vision as mode of knowledge through which curators and film ma-kers produce subjects of their representations. Paradigmatic shifts in the 1980s with the critique of 'modern constitution' and domination of vision as a major 'sense of knowledge' in Western thought had great impact on museum curators and ethnographic film authors who in the last two decades tried to incorporate those changes in their practices. The paper presents some examples of film and ethno-graphic practices that followed those theoretical shifts and try to deconstruct their own representational practices and evaluate the results of those attempts.
Fieldwork dillemas: problems of location, insiderhood, - and implicit discourses
Simi? Marina
Glasnik Etnografskog Instituta SANU , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/gei1002026s
Abstract: In this paper I want to address some problems of so-called ‘native anthropology’ and anthropology more broadly, through the native anthropologists’ double - insider-outsider position. Drawing from my own fieldwork research on post-socialist transition and cosmopolitanism in the northern Serbian town of Novi Sad in 2005 and 2006, I want to investigate the issue of location and complex processes of positioning and othering in which I was caught myself due to my ‘double position’ as an insider and outsider and through which my informants understood and made sense of their ‘place in the world’. This positioning is relevant for the investigation of the social processes of identification and location-building as a one of the key anthropological issues, as well as for understanding of the construction of anthropological location itself.
