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.

What was the topic of the discussion and how was organised?

The topic was “Importance of reconciliation among nations of Western Balkan countries on our way towards EU”. Firstly, I introduced myself and said few words about YEC and YRA program. Then I started to talk on the subject, and it was a mix of lecture and discussion.

Explain the reaction of the participants on your speech.

Some were more interested in the subject, some less, but I think, at some point I managed to get them all interested. Some were on similar seminars, and we shared our experiences.

Have you notice the impact of your lecture on the participants? Explain.

I think I reached to them, stimulated them to think on these subjects more than they used to. I concluded this from their reactions. I also approached them the importance of active citizens.

What were the questions posed by the participants and how did you react?

One of the questions was: What is in my opinion the main reason for bad situation in country? I planned to talk about that anyway, so my answer was long, I mentioned bad governance, passive citizens and bad relations between nations.
