Basic Description


Former President of the European Commission Romano Prodi once said: "Europe's only true competitive advantage is our past mistakes". In Retrospect sets off from this idea, that the EU constitutes an ongoing process rather than a completed edifice and aims to utilize the learnings derived from past mistakes and experiences in order to promote unity and integrated progress. Through collective remembrance and dialogue on EU's involvement in the Yugoslav wars, the project will enquire: a. The impact of incoherence between EU's value system and member states' national priorities and b. The role of national media in setting the agenda and leading the public opinion in major EU foreign policy decisions. EU values will be explored anew while their effective application will be promoted in both candidate and EU counties.
