Summary/Abstract: As it is important for a country to adopt a new constitution, its constitutional amendments are also of great importance. They are especially significant, because it is necessary for the constitution to adapt to the social reality in a timely fashion. As a matter of fact, Constitution of the Republic of Serbia during 11 years of its validity has not been amended yet, although it was pointed out by the experts that constitutional changes are necessary. Lately, it is quite certain that the amendments will come and, first and foremost, within the process of Serbia's accession to the European Union. It is my intention, through the study of constitutional amendments within countries of the former Yugoslavia that have certain similarities with Serbia, to find a certain pattern during this process, and also to discover some problems that could arise during the process of the upcoming constitutional changes. This knowledge could in the future gain an importance, when at one time in the future it comes to the constitutional amendments in Serbia.
