Building civil society and social movement :another Balkans is possible [en]
14 January 2004

 

Main issues for debate

1.Role of nationalisms, European and global institutions in the 90’s. Balkan wars. What movements and citizens should do to achieve a just and lasting peace.

2.Economic and social problems in the Balkans. Role of European and global institutions Reality and necessities, common alternatives. More specifically, the principal themes for debate could be defined as follows:

  • - Do European and global institutions deal with the main and urgent economic, social and environmental problems in the Balkans?
  • - Do they contribute to the development of the region? In which direction?
  • - What are the reality and the necessities, from the perspective of the social movements and NGOs? How should they co-operate to create common alternatives?

Alternative proposal

- Reinforcement of ongoing networking (or establishment of new networks) between social organisations, associations, or unions, and grass root initiatives.

Working examples of proposed alternatives

- Elaboration of balance sheets on particular issues (e.g. balance sheets on the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999, the ongoing forced privatisations, the Stability Pact in South-Eastern Europe, the protectorates in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo, the enlargement of EU towards Balkan countries etc.).

The feasibility of building a “BALKAN OBSERVATORY FOR ALTERNATIVE POLICIES” - that will tend to have dual purposes: data basis for critical analysis and alternatives - should be examined.
