Yugoslavia: The First 100 Years

Marking the 100th anniversary of the creation of Yugoslavia, the Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory of the University of Belgrade, supported by the Belgrade Office of the Heinrich Böll Foundation and the Danas daily newspaper, is organizing a debate entitled “Yugoslavia: The First 100 Years”. The history and duration of the Yugoslav state and society will be re-examined by relevant interlocutors from the former Yugoslav states. What does Yugoslavia represent in our societies today, did it have to disappear, how do we remember Yugoslavia, and can Yugoslavia be an alternative?
