Three fantastic days of the 10th Belgrade Security Forum are upon us, being held online under the name “No Trust – No Peace”.
Participants of the 10th Belgrade Security Forum will have a chance to listen to a discussion on issues that emerged as particularly important in the previous period marked by the pandemic – lack of trust and solidarity in international relations, manifested through the crisis of multilateralism, confidence in technology and its impact on global development, the state of democracy, which was among the first to be hit during the pandemic.
During the six days, there will be discussion on the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina (October 22), the future of the European Union and the European perspective of the Western Balkans (October 27), the elections in the United States (October 22), the relationship between technology and privacy (October 27), anti-EU narratives in the Western Balkans (October 20), depopulation (October 21), the crisis of democracy and solidarity (October 14).
Issues such as populism, extreme right-wing nationalism and organized crime are increasingly burdening global society and will also be discussed at 10th Belgrade Security Forum.
This year, the forum will also include an academic event that brings together young and promising researchers from the country, the region and the world, this time on the topic “Capture of the state and security” (October 20).
The Forum will be attended by Miroslav Lajcak, EU Special Representative for Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue, Oliver Varhelyi, EU Enlargement Commissioner, Susanne Schütz, German diplomat in charge of the Western Balkans, Tomas Petricek, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, Ivan Krastev, a leading name in political theory, Thomas Carothers, an expert in helping to build democratic capacity, Majlinda Bregu, Secretary General of the Regional Cooperation Council, Francine Pickup, UNDP Representative in Serbia, and others.
