  • IMPACT OF THERAPEUTIC HORTICULTURE ON PSYCHOSOCIAL ASPECTS OF FUNCTIONING
           IN ADULTS WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY

    • Authors: Biljana Milanović-Dobrota, Aleksandra Đurić-Zdravković, Mirjana Japundža-Milisavljević, Dragana Skočajić, Tamara Muić
      Pages: 335 - 350
      Abstract: Therapeutic horticulture (TH) is a non-invasive support treatment in which participants enhance their well-being through active or passive involvement in plant and plant-related activities. Positive effects of TH are mainly noticed in children and youth with intellectual disability (ID), while the effects of TH on adults with ID have not been extensively studied. The aim of this study was to determine the impacts of TH on psycho-social aspects of functioning in adults with moderate ID in institutional settings. The sample included 68 adults with moderate ID of both genders. The participants were divided into an experimental group (N=33), that participated in a designed ten-week program TH, and a control group (N=35). The Social Skills Rating System – SSRS (Gresham & Eliot, 1990) was used to assess social skills and behavioral problems and Self-Efficacy for Gardening Scale was designed for assessing self-efficacy. We compared the results before and after the intervention. The obtained results showed a significant decrease in different forms of problem behaviors, and an improvement of social skills and self-efficacy in experimental group. Results of this study provide the empirical proof for positive effects of TH on the improvement of the psychosocial well-being of adults with moderate ID in institutional settings. However, further research is necessary.

  • THE DEVELOPMENT OF PSYCHO-ONCOLOGY WORLWIDE AND IN SERBIA - FIRST STEPS
           AND FUTURE PLANS

    • Authors: Tamara Klikovac
      Pages: 351 - 360
      Abstract: Psycho-oncology is a well-developed field in developed countries around the world and in Europe, both theoretically and practically. Psycho-oncology refers to the provision of psychological and/or psychotherapeutic assistance and support to persons with malignant diseases and their families. Twenty-two world congresses in psycho-oncology have been held. The existence of many published books, peer reviewed journal articles, numerous courses and specialization in this area attests to the importance of progress in this field. This paper serves to highlight the development of psycho-oncology in the world, with special emphasis on the current state of the discipline in Serbia. The number of publications and scientific research in the field are still limited and the number of engaged professionals is insufficient to effectively implement psycho-oncology in the Serbian health system. Nonetheless, there is reason for optimism. Pursuant to Article 38, paragraph 1. of the Law on the Planning  System (Official  Gazette  of  RS,  No. 30/18), the  Government  of  RS  has  adopted  the  Program for the Advancement of Cancer Control in the Republic of Serbia for the period between 2020 and 2022. The Action Plan for the Implementation of the Program for the Advancement of Cancer Control pays special attention to the development and implementation of psychosocial services and their integration into oncological treatment. The plan specifically envisions the establishment of 6 and 8 psycho-oncological services and counseling centers in health institutions in the secondary/tertiary level, in which cancer patients are treated, in 2021 and 2022 respectively. If the intended plan is realized, it will be a huge step forward and the beginning of the systematic, earnest development of psycho-oncology in Serbia.

  • THE SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF SCHOOL-BASED PROGRAMS FOCUSED ON EXTERNALISING
           PROBLEMS IN STUDENTS

    • Authors: Marina Kovačević Lepojević, Boro Merdović, Dragan Živaljević
      Pages: 361 - 375
      Abstract: School-based programs focused on externalizing problems in students are recognized as an important part of school life and work. The aim of this paper is the systematization of scientific studies in the form of systematic presentations and meta-analysis of school programs, in which externalising problems in students is among the criteria for assessing the effectiveness of the program. Scientific results published in English in the last seven years are included in the systematization. Bases searched during research are: Google Scholar, PsycINFO, Web of Science (WOS), Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) and Scopus. The results of the research indicate that the most successful school-based interventions resulting in the prevention and reduction of externalizing problems are based on socio-emotional learning, that they are mostly implemented by teachers, that they are incorporated into the curriculum, and that their success depends on the quality of implementation.

  • DISTANCE LEARNING IN SERBIA – THE EXPERIENCE IN PRIMARY EDUCATION
           DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS

    • Authors: Branislav Randjelovic, Elizabeta Karalic, Danijela Djukic, Katarina Aleksic
      Pages: 377 - 397
      Abstract: In this paper, we consider the response of the education system of the Republic of Serbia to the COVID-19 epidemiological crisis in relation to the teaching process and distance learning activities in primary schools in Serbia. We examine learning through the televised programs of Serbia’s public broadcaster and other related internet services. The aim of this research is to estimate the quality of the teaching process and distance learning in primary schools. In accordance with the purpose of the research, a questionnaire about the educational experience and practices in primary schools during the spring and autumn of 2020 was created. The questionnaire is designed for school principals, teachers, students and parents/legal guardians of students. In total, 28186 people participated in this study conducted in March and April 2021. The results show that most schools used online resources efficiently despite the initially low digital competencies of teachers and students. Limited access to the internet and digital resources, as well as difficulties in engaging students, were gradually overcome during the fall of 2020. Based on the results of this research, we formulated the most important recommendations for the organization of distance learning and its future integration in the hybrid model of teaching and learning in school practice.

  • TOYS AS ARTIFACTS OF THE MATERIAL CULTURE OF CHILDREN AND CHILDHOOD:
           IMPLICATIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH

    • Authors: Marina Semiz
      Pages: 399 - 416
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to generate implications for future research based on the overview and analysis of the findings of relevant social sciences and the humanities that focus on toys as artifacts of the material culture of children, and/or childhood, with special reference to pedagogical research. By material culture of children, we mean items and objects that children themselves make, adapt or modify to fit their interests and the needs of their games, whereas the material culture of childhood refers toobjects created by adults for children to play with. Toys can encourage different types of activities necessary for overall personality development, and can help children develop their cognitive abilities, their body and senses, gain knowledge, socialize, cultivate their emotions and appreciation of beauty, and develop their imagination and creativity. The potential of toys that children make themselves is reflected in the upbringing of creative, free, environmentally conscious and active members of society. Additionally,these toys allow children to build play, to perceivetheir own capabilitiesand restrictions, and to express their imagination, creativity and respect toward the environment, life and oneself.Future research approaches should be directed toward: a) toys as artifacts of the material culture of children, i.e. objects that children themselves make and use for the purposes of play, learning and development; b) integrating the perspective of children and adults with regard to toys, because the distinction between material culture of children, and material culture of childhood is conditional; c) understanding social practice, as well as different discourses related to process of making toys of children building toys by themselves, or through cooperation with adults; d) qualitative research on the design and application of educational toyscreated by adults for children to play with; e) examining the possibilities and the potential of integrating the so-called improvised toys into the family and institutional context; and f) initiating evaluative studies and integrating the values and content of local culture into the preschool and school curricula.

  • STATUS AND CONCEPT OF THE SCHOOL SUBJECT HARMONY IN SECONDARY MUSIC
           EDUCATION

    • Authors: Nataša Nagorni Petrov
      Pages: 417 - 435
      Abstract: The paper analyses the curricula of the school subject Harmony (The Science of Harmony) throughout the period of twelve decades (1899‒2020), i.e. since the foundation of the first music school in Serbia up to the present day. The necessary and frequently unavoidable changes of these curricula have passed through five stages, or five steps in the development of the educational system and the concept of the school subject Harmony taught in secondary music schools. The examination of the dynamics and range of changes applied in order to define the goals, content, structure and character of the school subject Harmony is based on the analysis and classification of the available resources and data. The aim of this research is twofold: to examine the level and type of changes occurring in the Harmony curricula and to analyze and interpret the impact of the study of Harmony on personality and character of musicians of multiple career profiles. Music school students are thus allowed to devise their own career path and apply the acquired knowledge in practice when either playing an instrument, or singing, playing in an orchestra, analyzing music literature or simply exhibiting their creativity and potentials in various ways.

  • PESTEL ANALYSIS OF THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM WITH REFERENCE TO THE RIGHT TO
           HEALTH DURING A PANDEMIC

    • Authors: Nikolina Vojinović, Željko Stević
      Pages: 437 - 455
      Abstract: A pandemic caused by the coronavirus affects all aspects of life of an individual and a society as a whole. It is not only a question of the medical profession, but also of other areas, and especially the need for fundamental human rights. The measures adopted by state bodies are primarily aimed at protecting human health, but the effects and implications they cause limit other rights, so it raises the question of their adequacy. The basic and most important question is how to access health care in such conditions. Therefore, the main aim of the paper is to try to answer the question through PESTEL (P-Political, E-Economic, S-Social, T-Technological, E-Environmental, L-Legal) analysis of the healthcare system of the local community of Pale. Thirty factors of PESTEL analysis were quantified by using the Improved Fuzzy Stepwise Weight Assessment Ratio Analysis (IMF SWARA) method. The results obtained through the total of 70 formed models show that the current state of the observed local community is marked by social and legal factors. This analysis should present a diagnostic test of the current situation and provide a good basis for future actions.

  • AWARENESS CONTEXTS OF ONLINE INTERACTIONS AT THE CANNIBAL CAFÉ FORUM

    • Authors: Dalibor Petrović, Kristina Pejković, Nemanja Krstić
      Pages: 457 - 478
      Abstract: This paper demonstrates how Glaser and Strauss's procedural guidelines on awareness contexts can be utilised to study interactions in online deviant communities. This is, to our knowledge, the first time their awareness context paradigm has been used to examine the interactions of online communities of deviants. The research is based on a qualitative content analysis of Cannibal Café members’ discussions. By analysing the relationship between the Cannibal Café members’ identities, their awareness, and their interactions, our study has shown that the open awareness context, which is one of the four awareness contexts identified by Glaser and Strauss, was dominant within this online community of cannibals. However, although most of the interaction unfolded under the awareness context, this context actually coexisted with the suspicion context. One context did not transform into another: they simply coexisted, but the open awareness context prevailed, which proved crucial for the unconstrained expression of deviance.

  • REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA IN THE LIGHT OF KEY
           MESSAGES OF ENDOGENOUS THEORY OF GROWTH AND IMPERATIVES FOR IMPROVING
           COMPETITIVENESS

    • Authors: Slobodan Cvetanović, Vojislav Ilić, Dragan Turanjanin
      Pages: 479 - 499
      Abstract: At the end of the twentieth century, a qualitatively new concept of regional development policies appeared, and was affirmed, in many world economies. In short, at its center, there is the imperative to improve the region's competitiveness. The focus of new regional development policies is on initiatives that favor networking, the development of cooperative relationships, and the growth of confidence in regional economic actors. In these circumstances, people's readiness for new business ideas and organizational solutions have become far more important drivers of regional development than the number of businesses located in the region. The new concept of regional development policy is predominantly based on the postulates of endogenous growth theory. The imperative to improve the region's competitiveness is at its epicenter. Starting from such prominent theoretical explanations, our own composite index was constructed by analyzing the achieved level of development of individual regions of the Republic of Serbia in 2008 and 2018. The analysis showed that all regions in Serbia have development potentials, but that they manage to increase their level of development to a different extent, both in relation to the previous period and in relation to other regions in the country.

  • THE CHALLENGES OF UNIVERSAL POSTAL SERVICE COST MANAGEMENT

    • Authors: Radmila Jablan Stefanović, Vladan Knežević, Zoran Đeković
      Pages: 501 - 524
      Abstract: The provision of information with an accurate and timely description of all business processes holds a prominent position among various activities for enhancing the operations of network industries. Since price pressure is the primary consequence of competition in network industries, it is necessary to perform a cost analysis of the business processes of the industry’s monopolists. The realisation of all business activities that make up a production chain at as low a cost as possible, without affecting the quality of products and services, is the main issue of concern to network industry management. A key problem of cost management in network industries is their specific structure characterised, inter alia, by high participation, rapid growth and diversification of overhead costs.The research subject of this paper is the theoretical identification and understanding of the basis of a potential Universal Postal Service (UPS) cost accounting model of the Public Postal Operator (PPO) in Serbia. EU Directive 97/67 represents the starting point for providing the guidelines for the development of this model, such as separate internal accounting for several PPO service segments. The existing legislative framework which defines the relations on the national postal service market pays special attention to the cost of UPS, which provide the basis for service pricing. Тhe relevant result of this research, which has a significant practical application, is the basis of the model for calculating the cost of universal postal service, designed to provide informational support to management in the process of service pricing.

  • INSURANCE MARKET DEVELOPMENT AND ECONOMIC GROWTH: EVIDENCE FROM WESTERN
           BALKANS REGION

    • Authors: Nemanja Lojanica, Владимир Станчић, Stevan Luković
      Pages: 525 - 540
      Abstract: The basic objective of the paper is the examination of mutual interdependence of the parameters on insurance market and the economic growth at the specific area of ex-Yugoslavia. Time horizon of the observation encompasses the period 2005-2019, and as the appropriate methodological framework, the econometrics of panel data was used. The accompanying co-integration tests and tests of long-term effects have shown that the insurance sector and economic growth are long-term related, as well as that the insurance sector exerts positive and statistically significant influence on the economic growth. Additionally, it was shown that non-life insurance realizes more significant effects on growth. To confirm robustness, causality test has shown that changes in insurance sector cause the changes in economic growth. Economic policy makers have an important task ahead of them, which consists in promoting insurance markets, improvement of regulation, and legislation framework that should contribute to the growth of economic activity in analyzed countries.

  • ECONOMIC GROWTH AND TAX COMPONENTS: AN ANALYSIS OF CORPORATE INCOME TAX
           INCENTIVES AND THEIR IMPACT ON THE ECONOMIC GROWTH IN SERBIA

    • Authors: Jadranka Đurović Todorović, Milica Ristić Cakić, Vitomir Starčević
      Pages: 541 - 559
      Abstract: The paper empirically examines the effects of incentives in the domain of corporate income tax in Serbia between 2007 and 2018. The main aim of the paper is to test for effects of tax incentives on economic growth. To achieve the stated aim, a dataset consisting of 10 indicators will be analyzed by using the Principal Component Analysis method. This method allows the initial set of predictors to be transformed into a set of uncorrelated components, and allows linear regression to be performed. In accordance with the results of the analysis, the proposal for parametric reform should be based on the abolition of certain tax incentives in order to increase the efficiency of corporate income tax and improve business conditions. The analyzed data has shown that certain corporate tax incentives have had a significant effect on economic growth. Taking into consideration the adverse effects of the coronavirus crisis, the authors give recommendations on what should be developed in the domain of corporate income tax.

  • THE EXPANSION OF SERBIA IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE 12TH CENTURY

    • Authors: Đorđe Đekić
      Pages: 561 - 576
      Abstract: In Serbian historiography, the expansion of Serbia, or Raška (Rascia), in the first half of the 12th century at the expense of Byzantium, whose vassal it was, was recorded a long time ago. At the same time, it is recorded that Serbia was defeated three times by Byzantium (in 1127 – 1129, 1149 and 1150). Byzantium dealt with the problem of unruly vassals by annexing some territory at the beginning of the 11th century, relocating population (after 1129 and 1150), giving land to the Serbs settled along the Byzantine border (to Zavida, Primislav, Desa, Stefan Nemanja), and raising the number of soldiers Serbia was obliged to give for waging war (in 1150). The lands granted to Serbs between 1129 and 1143 spanned the area between Ras and Kopaonik, while those granted between 1150 and 1158/9 spanned the area between Kopaonik and the parishes (Serb. župa) of Toplica and Reka. The first expansion benefited Zavida, who received lands from Byzantium after acknowledging the Empirećs sovereignty, upon his return to Ras, which belonged to Byzantium at the time. The second expansion impacted at least a part of Zavida’s territory which Stefan Nemanja later received when he became a suzerain in Serbia. We hypothesize that the territories that Byzantium gave to the Serbs as its vassals did become part of Serbia at a certain moment and under certain conditions. The answer to the question of how this was possible even though Serbia was defeated by Byzantium may be that Byzantine emperors regarded Serbian rulers as their officials and Serbian lands as Byzantine provinces.

  • THE INFLUENCE OF THE EXPERIMENTAL CONTEXT ON LEXICAL AMBIGUITY EFFECTS

    • Authors: Ksenija Mišić, Dušica Filipović Đurđević
      Pages: 577 - 596
      Abstract: Previous research with the visual lexical decision task demonstrated that polysemous words (multiple related senses) have a processing advantage when compared to unambiguous words, whereas homonymous words (multiple unrelated meanings) have a processing disadvantage. Although the same pattern of results was observed in Serbian, the two effects were investigated in separate studies. The aim of this study was to test whether the effects can be replicated when both types of ambiguity are presented within the same experimental list. To test this, we conducted three experiments. In the first one, the mixed presentation of unambiguous, homonymous, and polysemous words did not reveal any of the ambiguity effects, leading to the conclusion that the experimental context may affect the emergence of ambiguity effects. The other two experiments were conducted to explicitly control for the experimental context. In both experiments, we presented each ambiguity type within the same block and counterbalanced the order of the block presentation. These experiments revealed the presence of the polysemy advantage, but not the homonymy disadvantage, which is a common pattern in literature. Polysemy effects typically emerge relatively easily, whereas the homonymy disadvantage requires additional conditions. Finally, we conclude that experimental context does play a role in ambiguity processing, although the order of presentation does not affect the overall results.

  • FOCALIZATION IN MUNRO’S “SOMETHING I’VE BEEN MEANING TO TELL YOU”
           – COGNITIVE POETICS IN PRACTICE

    • Authors: Sanja Ignjatović
      Pages: 597 - 613
      Abstract: The paper explores the dimensions of focalization from the point of view of cognitive poetics leaning on the idea that focalization directly affects the reading experience and, therefore, the reception of the narrative discourse. The importance of deixis, their referential value in the storytelling process and reception, is illustrated on the example of the short story “Something I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You” by Alice Munro. Focalization is treated as a rhetorical instrument modifying various layers of the narrative discourse and strategically guiding the process of reception. The first section presents the theories relevant for the understanding of the concept of focalization, and it includes a short overview of deixis from the point of view of cognitive poetics. The analysis of the short story by Alice Munro follows to serve as an illustration of the rhetorical flexibility of storytelling. Finally, the concluding remarks offer arguments against the conventional comprehension and interpretation of third-person narration.

  • THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE DSU ARTICLES 21(5) AND 22 AND THE ISSUE OF
           THE LITIGATION DEADLOCKS IN THE DISPUTE SETTLEMENT SYSTEM OF THE WORLD
           TRADE ORGANIZATION

    • Authors: Uroš Zdravković
      Pages: 615 - 638
      Abstract: In December 2019, the World Trade Organization (WTO) litigation system was deadlocked. One of the important concerns which arose then was how the blockage of the litigation system could affect Dispute Settlement Understanding (DSU) procedural provisions governing the suspension of concession and other obligations. In the light of this these circumstances, we need to discuss the “sequencing” issues regarding the claimant’s procedural right to seek authorization for suspension in accordance with Article 22 of the DSU and implementation procedure envisaged in Article 21(5). Thus far, the WTO judicial bodies have been inclined to the position that there is no “sequencing condition” for exercising procedural rights provided in Article 22. Contrary to the position of the WTO jurisprudence, academics mostly advocate that the relationship between Articles 21(5) and 22 of the DSU exists through sequencing prerequisite. However, this problem needs to be redefined in the light of the irregular circumstances that may be created by the blockage of the litigation system. Therefore, exclusively in situation where litigation is in blockage, the claimant should be entitled to commence the Article 22 procedure, without prior employment of the implementation procedure in accordance with Article 21(5) of the DSU. In normal circumstances, the claimant must respect a sequencing prerequisite.
