Deadline: 1 November 2016 Open to: anyone interested in history Venue: 17-18 February 2017, Zagreb, Croatia


World War II caused a collective trauma in the memory of Europeans, which resulted in the erection of countless monuments all over Europe to commemorate the events and battles as well as the civilian and military victims.

The perception of monuments created in the period of Real Socialism to commemorate World War II was rapidly changing, and the meaning they conveyed, as well as their memorial and aesthetic value were being questioned, challenged and/or denied. Often violent, break with the former regime resulted in their relocation, temporary or permanent removal from the public space and vandalism or destruction.

These questions will be discussed at... Read More »

Posted on October 14th, 2016 in Articles, EventsRespond to this post »

The Balkans are one of the most interesting parts of the European mainland. I consider them a puzzle of different nations and minorities, a place of many differences and similarities at same time, a region with rich cultural and food offer, filled with amazing nature and authentic architecture. It is a region worth being discovered and visited. This September, there was one more reason to visit the Balkans – the International Youth Conference, organized by Youth Alliance, happening traditionally in Krushevo (#iyckr2016), a small and lovely town in Macedonia.

Macedonia, along with neighboring Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia, was known as Yugoslavia just 2,5 decades ago. Exactly this was one of the topics... Read More »

Youth Has Voice Too?

Posted on August 12th, 2016 in Articles, Youth ActivismRespond to this post »

Difficult, boring, opaque, unimportant – the descriptors of EU affairs world are not flattering. In the light of the widely talked about rise of the far right, increasing nationalism, hostility towards immigrants and the individual closing down of borders, the public opinion on the European project has seemed to lose popularity over the course of the past years. With youth sharply disconnected from the original ideas that supported in the very beginning the creation of a European project, the current political classes tap into frustrations gathered over the past last decades.

The young people of Europe as we know it have been raised in a war-less world and accustomed to a mostly open borders circulation within the... Read More »
