Ljubomir Tadić, the father of Serbia's former President Boris Tadić, was born in the village of Smriječno, in Montenegro, in 1925. He was 16 years old when he joined the WW2 Partisan movement.
He was a professor of philosophy and sociology of law at the University of Belgrade and a permanent member of SANU.
He was one of the leaders of the 1968 students' protests in the former Yugoslavia and one of the founders of the renewed Democratic Party (DS) in 1989.
After Slobodan Milošević in late 1994 broke his regime's ties with that of the Serbs in Bosnia and their leader Radovan Karadžić, Tadić supported their leadership. Along with some 30 intellectuals, he took part in the setting up of the Senate of the Serb Republic.
He was also one of the signatories of a declaration asking for Hague Tribunal's case against Karadžić to be abandoned.
Tadić chaired the Movement for Joint European State of Serbia and Montenegro, which he founded in 2005, along with Matija Bećković, Veselin Đuretić, and Slavenko Terzić. The movement was in favor of preserving the state union between Serbia and Montenegro.
Tadić was the recipient of the Seventh of July Award, the Order of Merits for the People with Silver Rays, the Order of Labor with Golden Wreath, and the Medal for Bravery.
