In order to promote critical thinking, media literacy, and knowledge about the political situation in the Western Balkans among politically engaged youth and young activists from the region, we have decided to organize a series of online webinars. Professor Dr. Dejan Jović will be our distinguished guest lecturer at the upcoming Regional News Cafe Webinar: International Relations and Foreign Policy Analysis of Western Balkan Countries, which will be held on October 19th from 17:00.
Webinar Goals: This webinar will delve into the latest political developments in the Western Balkan countries since the aim of our webinar series is to empower the next generation of leaders and young activists in the Western Balkans with essential skills to deepen their understanding of recent and ongoing regional political events. To be able to actively engage in the discussion, we encourage participants to critically analyze political information they encounter in the news and read on news portals.
