KOSOVO AND SERBIA – HOW MUCH LONGER BEFORE NORMALITY?
At the Fifth Belgrade Security Forum (BSF), the Council for Inclusive Governance in cooperation with BSF co-organized their fourth annual panel discussion dedicated to Kosovo-related issues. In an overly packed, standing-room-only auditorium the panel addressed the most critical issues of normalization of relations between Kosovo and Serbia including the general frustration with the length of the process and the lack of significant impact on the daily lives of citizens. Panel participants included Gordana Comic‚ Deputy Speaker of the Serbian Parliament, Ilir Deda, Member of the Kosovo Parliament, Marko Djuric‚ Director of the Office for Kosovo and Metohija of the Government of Serbia, Dukagjin Gorani, Chairman of Common Voice, Ramadan Ilazi, Deputy Minister of European Integration of Kosovo, Ljubisa Mijacic, researcher and adviser on project development from the north of Kosovo, and Samuel Zbogar‚ EU Special Representative in Kosovo. CIG President Alex Roinishvili Grigorev moderated the discussions. The CIG President also took part in the roundtable discussion on “The Berlin Process in Belgrade: The EU as a Peace Project Revisited in the Western Balkans.”
A short report from the panel is available on the BSF WEBSITE as well as a VIDEO of the roundtable.
