The first event within our Annual Seminar is successfully completed

From 2 to 4 December, first in the series of events planned by the program intended for 13th generation of BFPE’s Alumni seminar – oldest and certainly most prestigious of BFPE’s educational activities – was held in Zrenjanin.

Led by the idea to face our participants straight away with some of the most difficult issues surrounding this region, we discussed the necessity and difficulty of facing the past, (mis)use of memory and history, as well as possibility to overcome some of the divisions in our society by deep and meaningful dialogue between religions.

Dear friend of the BFPE, Professor Žarko Puhovski provided the opening remarks. We also had the pleasure to host previous Special Prosecutor for War Crimes Vladimir Vukcevic; Monsignor Stanislav Hocevar, Archbishop of Belgrade Archdiocese; Aleksandar Simic, composer and civic activist; Professor of Faculty of Political Science (University of Belgrade) Slobodan Markovic and our colleague Jelena Volic-Hellbusch.

13th generation attending the Annual Seminar program is composed of women and men politicians representing most of political options in the Serbian Nat. Assembly; working on all levels of government, as well as representatives of academia, business and the media. Annual seminar continues its program in 2017.
