Institute for European Affairs is focusing on negotiations between Serbia and the EU as well as on strengthening the capacity of all sides involved in the process. Given the complexity and long duration of the process, the Institute brings together a large number of professionals and external experts with whom organises trainings, debates and other forms of capacity development. We want to contribute to enhanced understanding of Serbia-EU relations. The Institute provides multi-perspective trainings in order to enable active participation of professionals and citizens in the decision-making processes. 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. The overall objective is active membership of Serbia in Euro-Atlantic framework for the benefit of all citizens.

As a P2P follow up activity of Our Future Europe Program, I have participated and organized two activities. One panel discussion and follow-up lecture.

First activity was panel discussion, held on Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade, named: Ideology of LGBT movement. I was first speaker, beside Boban Stojanović (from Queeria and Belgrade Pride) and Lazar Pavlović (Gay-Straight Alliance).

Before starting a discussion, I have presented to participants and speakers Our Future Europe program concept and its activities, and I was talking about importance of improving human rights in Serbia, not only on a legal level, but implementing them in whole spheres of our society. Moderator of discussion was Ana Jakšić from student organization Students for Liberty of Faculty of Philosophy. There were about 25 participants.

As a follow-up of this panel discussion, I organized a lecture for interested parcitipants along with Office for Youth of Zvezdara municipality, named What are human rights and why human rights matter?

Before delivering a lecture, we discussed about various workshops that I have participated and lead in Ommen and Utrecht and how creative approach is important in education.
