Post-Conflict Politics in Bosnia

Project on Peacebuilding is organising a weeklong course examining the history, context, and changing politics of peacebuilding.

It is now more than twenty five years since the war in Bosnia but the economy is still struggling, the infrastructure is still crumbling, and the political institutions are still stalled in conflict. For the international community, Bosnia is the textbook case for post-conflict peacebuilding, but what has actually been achieved? Read more

Programme finalised

After several weeks of frantic activity, this week we closed our programme of activities so that we can have it printed in time for the forum.

With almost 100 speakers confirmed at the time of writing, from places as diverse as Cameroon, Iraq, Chile and the United States, and from all over Europe, distributed among 21 working areas, and with the support of around 50 organisations, action fronts, movements and networks, and hundreds of individual participants, the forum promises to be an exciting cauldron of activity in which activists can learn from the experience of others and contribute their own experiences, creating a common intelligence that all of us can take from the forum back to our areas of social and political activism.

P.E.A.C.E. – Peace, eACTIVISM

Seminar / Conference

16-22 September 2018 | European Youth Centre Budapest, Hungary

This project aims to train youth workers and leaders that work with young people, how to encourage their respective beneficiaries to interact more by creating and sharing digital stories, online campaigns or learning about e-Activism.

Everyone has a story to tell, and those digital stories are always very powerful, since in many cases they highlight very important issues, such as violence, discrimination or a struggle to find one’s place in the society. They also break down barriers as in our experience a unifying cause or message can often overcome ethnic or society divisions. Read more

Balkan Youth Forum

The Balkan Youth Forum is a non-formal learning program for youth from diverse types of Balkan states, designed by a very young team of alumni of the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellowship program, aged 18 to 21 and funded by the Alumni Engagement Innovation Fund. It brings together 2 participants, aged 16 to 18, from each Balkan country for an intensive week of lectures, debates, workshops, simulations and meetings with representatives of the European Commission, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other relevant institutions and organizations. BYF combines peer-to-peer learning, edutainment and volunteering. The purpose of these activities is helping participants form a more profound understanding of the past and present of the Balkans, to shape a personal opinion on the importance of cooperation and to inspire them to take action. At the end of the program, the participants will present their own projects for sustainable cooperation between their communities, which they will later implement in their own countries with the help of their BYF mentors.
