Albania and Serbia towards a common future in the European Union

The Albanian Institute for International Studies together with the Forum for International Relations of the European Movement in Serbia, with support from the Federal Republic of Germany is implementing the project of sustaining part of the 2016 activities of the Joint Centre for Albania-Serbia relations. In this context we organized the Durres Forum, an interactive 2 days event that took place May 6-7 and which gathered speakers and participants from various walks of life.

The forum objectives were to increase the communication, knowledge and interaction between actors in both countries, Albania and Serbia, which are influential in politics, economic policy making, media, arts, culture, youth activism, etc. with the final intend impact of building networks and working partnerships. This in turn will help the normalization of relations between two countries and contribute to the European integration of both countries and societies. The forum also provided a safe space for the discussion of a variety of topics, including sensitive ones and encouraged genuine debate with respect for ethical communication.
