The Institute actively advocates for fundamental reforms within the EU integration process and in cooperation with partners working on strengthening Serbia's capacity to face the challenges of the global world through collective action.

My contribution to regional reconciliation

Being a youngster in this transition period has a lot of positive and negative sides. The influence, and sometimes the conditions have big role, but it would be very easy if everyone accepts each other, and have a high tolerance. At first, we have lot of conditions for learning and realizing the surrounding, the living conditions the opportunities and education. On one side, I personally have used all those things in a positive manner with an intention of meeting many different cultures and people, so can prove myself and my surrounding that every person is the same, share the same opinions and that everyone has the same right for using the opportunities and that everyone is made of the same skin and blood. In that manner I consider that all of us should cooperate with each other, share the positive mood, give chance one to another and build stronger, more powerful, smart and friendly global community.

Every single person is a one part of the whole system, system made by the nature and developed by the humans. The word “human” itself is a strong adjective for the conscious live creatures living on the Earth. Giving a birth to a human is obligating that person to use rationally the nature sources and be useful for the surrounding. Which is the same with gaining the right to use the nature sources rationally. Not everyone has the same conditions and choices for living when it is born, and that does not make, and divide the people, on more or less human. But on the other side, that also does not mean that everyone takes the role of being a human enough seriously. It is strange how some people get more comfortable with the things that are less rational and more harmful for their health and the surrounding, and how being selfish is easier than being careful. Maybe “careful” is too strong, but maybe it will be better if some people are really more careful than they act. It is impossible and absolutely unfair to generalize the people’s acting, but it is also unfair to be part of a World where people live only for themselves and not appreciating the others’ lives. The right of choosing the personal lifestyle cannot be an object of judging, because there is no one appropriate to decide if something is right or wrong, but the natural laws. The natural laws are to be followed for equality and harmony among the people. And again one more “but” is that not everyone consider the World as place that need to be shared and where everyone should accepts the people by their personality, and not by their outlook neither their choice of profession, lifestyle, place of origin so on so forth. And now I reach the point and idea of discrimination and prejudices that still are very common, even if it is 21st century, there is high technology, easy ways of meeting people from all around the World, simple opportunities for realizing the equality of the human race.

When gave a birth, every single person, cannot be even recognized if it is a male or female, and of course it is not even conscious to choose where and how to live. That little creature becomes part of the World in the way it is grown, taught, educated and by a chance of DNA crossings, it builds a lifestyle in kind a way its surrounding behaves. It is impossible to choose the color of the skin, the place of birth and the conditions in the time of growing and building the personality. So if this is the same for everyone, why all of a sudden this conscious creature starts dividing and judging the others lifestyle, outlook or whatever, and judge his personality by the things he see, and not by the way the other one is behaving? How come, the music we listen, the clothes we wear, and the occupation we have chosen to be more or less superior than someone else choice? All our life, all the humans are part of one place which offers different conditions for living, so until we become conscious of deciding the things that later on we are identifying, or we want to be identified by, we only identify ourselves by the human race. So being a human does not give us the right to discriminate and judge others. Belonging or supporting a group that does not see the people only, and only as human creatures is what makes the World a divided place, and place where “opposite side” exists.

Luckily there are lot of people around the region, as well as in the World, that support the idea of reconciliation, so we feel powerful to do something with the “opposite” side. Of course, it is a must to accept and appreciate other’s culture, habits, religion, behavior, opinion and to be conscious that the World belongs to every single live creature and we have to build harmony for better global mood. So it should be accepted that it is very easy be a friend, best friend, to understand each other even if you are not the same religion, nationality, you don’t speak same native language, you have different skin color so on so forth.
