This conference belongs to the FES “Academia in Dialogue” Series, which is running since spring 2018, and is organized in cooperation with University of Rijeka, University of Sarajevo, University of Vienna and Panteion University in Athens that is the Hosting Institution.

The Conference will bring together a diverse panel with representatives of academia, civil society, and political parties to discuss the phenomenon of radical political mobilization in response to the tensions surrounding political and national identities, which challenge SEE countries, the situation regarding Kosovo, the North Macedonia ‘name issue’, the Prespa agreement, hostilities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and even disputes between Croatia and Slovenia over territory. The aim of Conference is to go beyond a mere analysis of the situation and to offer a platform, which will serve as a fertile ground for developing concrete and effective strategies for addressing radicalization and destabilizing forces in the Southeastern part of Europe.
