Abstract: The paper presents an analysis of the reform of the national security system of the Republic of Serbia. The leading method in this study is the system analysis method, which allowed the author to analyse the features of the modern national security architecture of Serbia and the procedure of interaction of its components. Studying the current regulation of security issues in the Republic of Serbia, the author comes to the conclusion that, on the one hand, as a result of the reform in Serbia, a new national security system has been created that meets European standards and is able to adequately respond to modern challenges and threats to international and domestic peace and security. But, on the other hand, currently, the activities of the security agencies of Serbia are under multi-vector civilian control, which, undoubtedly, constitutes one of the most important features of a democratically organised state.

Keywords: national security system; security intelligence agency; law on the basics of organising security services; national security council; army of Serbia.
