Relationship status: It’s complicated
What should Sweden do for Serbia during the EU chairmanship?
Hear Serbian civil society and oppositional voices on the EU integration process.
Pro-European forces won the Serbian election in May 2008 promising a speedy EU-integration. Since then the number of EU-positive Serbs has gone down, general Mladic is still at large and Serbs still need visa to travel outside the region.
Soon Sweden will hold the EU-chairmanship. What are the Swedish priorities when it comes to EU-integration and visa liberalization for Serbia? And what do Serbian activists and politicians think the EU should do? Do our positions match?
The panel offers a critical perspective on the EU-integration process from a politician from the Serbian oppositional Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), an international law student involved in pro-European youth activism and an EU-critical queer activist.
The Swedish International Liberal Centre welcomes you to hear their voices and discuss with them what Sweden can and should do for Serbian EU-integration in 2009.
In the panel:
Dusan Gamser, Serbian liberal democratic party LDP
Majda Puaca, Anti-fascist activist in Queer Belgrade Collective
Milica Popovic, Student of international law in Belgrade, activist in youth movement No Alternative to Europe in 2008
Lars Wahlund, Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Christina Wassholm, Author of the book ”Vi är Serbiens hjärta”
Cecilia Wigström, Member of Parliament for Folkpartiet liberalerna.
The discussion will be moderated by:
Ulf B. Andersson, Editor of Amnesty Press
