My name is Ana Mullanji, a youth worker from Tirana, Albania, founder and director of Beyond Barriers Association working with youngsters since 2014. I remember my first visit to a Balkan country, in Serbia, when I was selected to attend a training course for trainers organized by European Youth Foundation. It was the first steps of my career so I felt lucky and privileged to be selected to attend such activity. Different to nowadays, during that period the possibilities for participating in such activities were limited and the visa regime travel in the Balkan countries was making the process even more complicated for Albanian citizens. The idea to participate in that activity flattered me and without thinking twice I started the procedures for my visa. I was so happy for this opportunity that I wanted to share the news with all my friends.
Have you felt like you wanted to change the world, but you do not know where to start? Have you felt like you want to change yourself, but you keep procrastinating and not allowing your ‘better self’ to emerge? Are you willing to be the change you want to see and to find peace within yourself and in your society?
Youth Initiative for Human Rights welcomes the placing of the Bill on Ratification of the Agreement on the Establishment of the Regional Youth Cooperation Office, on the agenda for discussion in the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia.
We believe that this agreement is of particular importance for all young people in the Western Balkans, especially at a time when political tensions are at the highest level. In the light of the meeting of foreign ministers of the countries of the Western Balkans in Italy and the working dinner of Prime Ministers in Brussels on the same day, we believe that dialogue is the only mechanism for resolving regional problems.
In the lack of expertise offered by political analysts and sociologists, you might think – what qualifies me to write about reconciliation and coexistence in this region? I can point out two references – a citizen of Serbia and a civil sector activist. Furthermore, I won’t mention any legal regulations, strategies or signed documents, nor will I offer an expert analysis of the current social ambience with reference to the events of the last decade of 20th century and from the start of new millennia in the Western Balkans. This is a personal point of view and therefore some readers may conclude that this is an „abstract scribbling“.
