Engagement studies in the context of post-Yugoslav space

In cooperation with the Faculty of Philosophy of Banja Luka, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and UG Oštra Nula, IFDT organizes a conference on engagement studies in post-Yugoslav space. The conference will be held from November 5th to November 6th 2018 with the participation of guests from Belgrade, Rijeka, Sarajevo and Banja Luka.

The conference will address the issues of theory and practice of engagement in the context of political and social turmoil in post-Yugoslav space. In this context, the issue of increasing democracy, the crisis of institutions, the lack of interest and passivity of citizens and the rise of political and social uncertainty are of paramount importance. In view of these issues, the conference should re-examine the possibilities of effective redemocratization of societies in the region.
